CSR Asia Workshop: Part II
Workshop: Can a tobacco company ever be socially responsible? This is set to be a lively and engaging debate and a debate it will be there is no hard sell here. What should a tobacco company do in Asia, for example, where over 50% of men smoke in some regions? What can any company do that has a product that damages its consumers? Should we shun tobacco companies or cooperate with them? Philip Morris wants to engage with their stakeholders. But do you want to engage with them?
