We're listed in DJSI for 19th consecutive year

27 November 2020

BAT has been named in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) for a 19th consecutive year - the only tobacco company to be listed in the prestigious DJSI World Index.

We achieved industry-leading scores in 13 of the 23 categories assessed and top scores of 100% in seven of these categories.

Created by S&P Dow Jones Indices, the DJSI represents the gold standard for tracking corporate sustainability. In 2020, around 3,500 companies had their sustainability practices assessed against ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) criteria. Only the top 10% are recognised as leaders in corporate sustainability and achieve DJSI World Index inclusion.

This recognition is testament to our continued commitment to accelerate the transformation of our company. We are building A Better Tomorrow by reducing the health impact of its global business, which entails:

  • Committing to providing adult consumers with a wide range of enjoyable and less risky products
  • Continuing to be clear that combustible cigarettes pose serious health risks, and the only way to avoid these risks is not to start or to quit
  • Encouraging those who otherwise continue to smoke, to switch completely to scientifically-substantiated, reduced-risk alternatives
  • Tracking and sharing progress of our transformation
