Altria Group, Inc. (Altria) (NYSE: MO) will host a live audio webcast of its 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (“2023 Annual Meeting” or “meeting”) on Thursday, May 18, 2023 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time.
The 2023 Annual Meeting will be a virtual meeting conducted via live webcast. During the meeting, shareholders as of the 2023 Annual Meeting record date (March 27, 2023) will be able to vote their shares electronically and will be able to submit questions during the meeting as time permits.

Corporate Responsibility Resources
Responsibility is a core tenet of our Vision, and we believe that our actions will benefit tobacco consumers, our businesses, our shareholders and society. Our Corporate Responsibility Focus Areas are: (i) reduce the harm of tobacco products, (ii) prevent underage use, (iii) protect the environment, (iv) drive responsibility through our value chain, (v) support our people and communities and (vi) engage and lead responsibly.
We recently posted the following corporate responsibility-focused video content:
- Altria’s Corporate Responsibility Highlights; and
- Creating the Conditions for Tobacco Harm Reduction, a panel discussion from our 2023 Investor Day.
We also recently published the following reports and snapshots that highlight our corporate responsibility efforts and initiatives:
- Lobbying and Political Activity Transparency & Integrity Report;
- Engage & Lead Responsibly Report;
- Prevent Underage Use Snapshot;
- Drive Responsibility Through Our Value Chain Snapshot; and
- Support Our People & Communities Snapshot.
In addition, in response to majority shareholder support for a shareholder proposal at our 2022 Annual Meeting requesting that we commission a civil rights equity audit, we announced that we will conduct an equity and civil rights assessment. We issued a press release with further details in January 2023 that is available on www.altria.com/press-releases.
We look forward to engaging with our shareholders at the 2023 Annual Meeting.
