Sustainability Report 2011
 

Water is an important resource for us, especially in manufacturing and tobacco growing. For many years, we have been measuring water use in our operations and working to reduce it. In 2011, we exceeded our global 2012 target to reduce our water use by 13.4 per cent to 4.2 cubic metres per million cigarettes equivalent produced, from our 2007 baseline of 4.85 cubic metres per million cigarettes equivalent produced. For Group data and more information, please see the environment section of this Report.

*Our company in Canada does not have a manufacturing facility, therefore the data uses the normalised output figure 'cigarettes equivalent sold' instead of 'cigarette equivalent produced'.

The data is from our online Group-wide EHS reporting system. Previous figures reported in local publications may vary due to differing local reporting standards.
