What the future might look like
We expect the effects of climate change to be felt more strongly in the coming years. Together with the growing global population and economic development, this will probably result in disruption to the water cycle, loss of biodiversity, decreasing soil fertility and many other environmental changes. We are also likely to see more legislation and other initiatives to manage climate change.
For British American Tobacco, these changes to the environment could make it harder for us to source tobacco and make and distribute our products, as well as affecting the communities and landscapes in which we operate. So we are increasingly focused on minimising the effect we have on climate change and preparing our business for the risks ahead.
