Mapping our ESG disclosures

We map our ESG disclosures against three leading global reporting frameworks


Global Reporting Initiative

Our reporting against the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards highlights 16 material topics, reflecting BAT’s most significant economic, environmental and social impacts, or those that substantively influence the assessments and decisions of stakeholders.

See our 2019 GRI Index (64 kb) .

Sustainable Accounting Standards Board

Our sustainability reporting suite in 2019 marks the first time BAT has reported to the Sustainable Accounting Standards Board (SASB) framework against both the Tobacco and Agricultural Production Standards.

The SASB framework helps businesses identify, manage and report on financial aspects of sustainability consistently and transparently.

World Economic Forum ESG index

In 2019, we also reported to the four pillars of the World Economic Forum’s new ESG index.

Launched at Davos, the new index covers a core set of material ESG metrics and provides disclosure recommendations that will provide a consistent basis across industries.
