An independent review of our sustainability reporting is an important element of helping stakeholders place trust in our processes and in what we report, and supports our commitment to openness and transparency.
In 2017, we continued to engage Ernst & Young LLP to provide limited assurance of selected sustainability data. In addition, building on our long history of open engagement with our stakeholders, this is the second year we invited our Independent Stakeholder Panel, formed of key opinion leaders, to offer comment on the materiality of our Sustainability Report and a collective opinion on BAT’s performance.
