As we build A Better Tomorrow™, sustainability is at the core of our business. It is crucial to creating a responsible future for our consumers, shareholders, stakeholders and our company. It’s not new to BAT either – as a major international business in a controversial sector, we have long been aware of our responsibilities and our ability to address issues on a global scale.
We have a long history in sustainability and contributions to communities, with significant progress including:
- BAT has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) for 19 consecutive years.
- We have strengthened our approach to human rights, sustainable agricultural practices among the tobacco farmers we work with and developed industry-wide security systems for our supply chain that help prevent tobacco trafficking.
- Our contributions to the local community and charitable projects focus on social investment to benefit the community rather than as a way to promote ourselves.
