british american tobacco p.l.c. sustainability report 2009 - Wood fuel performance data


Wood fuel sources

Company sponsored or advised forestry includes trees grown by farmers and co-operatives advised by our direct agronomy services as well as trees planted or sponsored by our companies.

Unknown sources are those where the type of forestry cannot be clearly established. We began including these in our reporting in 2007.

In 2009, 4.3 per cent of curing fuels were reported to be sourced from natural forest by farmers directly contracted to us. This is a small increase from our 2008 figure of 3.7 per cent, largely due to more detailed measurement and categorisation of wood fuel sources.
