Celebrating 20 years in the DJSI

Celebrating 20 years in the DJSI

13 December 2021

Last month BAT was named in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) for a 20th consecutive year. Not only that, but we are also, once again, the only tobacco company to be included in the prestigious DJSI World Index. The World Index represents the top 10% of more than 10,000 companies assessed.

BAT is the highest scoring tobacco company in 2021, with industry leading scores in 11 of the 24 categories assessed, while achieving a top score of 100% in six categories1.

Our video above looks at our achievement of 20 years in the DJSI and sets out how our ongoing inclusion in the World Index demonstrates our commitment to sustainability and how it is central to our A Better Tomorrow™ transformation.

Kingsley Wheaton, Chief Marketing Officer at BAT, said: “It is an honour to have been recognised by the DJSI every year for the last 20 years and once again be ranked within the DJSI World Index.

“Building A Better Tomorrow by reducing the health impact of our business is core to BAT’s future sustainability. This is why we are accelerating our transformation away from combustible cigarettes and investing to provide our consumers with enjoyable, less risky*† products.”
