How we report
A robust process
BAT is a leading, multi-category consumer goods business. Our purpose is to build a better tomorrow by reducing the health impact of our business through offering a greater choice of enjoyable and less risky products for our consumers. Our ambition is to increasingly transition our revenues from cigarettes to non-combustible products over time.
We have been producing independently assured reports for more than a decade and believe this long history of reporting demonstrates a serious commitment to transparency, corporate responsibility and sustainability.
Our sustainability reporting aims to provide focused and integrated sustainability communications for our stakeholders across different formats. Our suite of reporting includes our first Combined Annual and ESG Report, issue-specific Focus Reports, a Diversity and Inclusion Report, an ESG Performance Data Book and a Modern Slavery Statement. Details of other key issues and activities can be found throughout this website.
An independent review of our sustainability reporting is an important element of helping stakeholders place trust in our processes and in what we report, and supports our commitment to openness and transparency. For our 2022 reporting, KPMG LLP conducted independent, limited assurance on selected information in accordance with ISAE 3000.
Performance data, and progress against our goals can be found in our ESG Performance Data Book 2022 (1.2 mb) .
Our Sustainability Focus Reports on specific-topics provide stakeholders with more in-depth information on the areas that interest them most, including our industry-first Human Rights Report, published in December 2020.
