Notes: 2022 (2021 for Scope 3) metrics with independent limited assurance by KPMG in accordance with ISAE 3000. See BAT ‘Reporting Criteria’ for key terms and definitions, on bat.com/sustainabilityreporting. Environmental and Health & Safety data is reported for the period 1 December 2021 to 30 November 2022. In 2022, BAT changed its CO2e emissions reduction baseline from 2017 to 2020, following SBTi approval of its near-term, 1.5°C-aligned, 2030 reduction target. 1) Compared to 2020 baseline. Comprises 50% reduction in Scope 1, 2 and 50% reduction in Scope 3 GHG (CO2e) emissions. Scope 3 emissions target includes purchased goods and services, upstream transportation and distribution, use of sold products and end-of-life treatment of sold products, which collectively comprised >90% of Scope 3 emissions in 2020. 2) BAT Group goals cover all tobacco used in Group combustibles & THP products (‘tobacco supply chain’). Group metrics, however, derive data from the BAT’s annual Thrive assessment, which includes the Group’s directly contracted farmers and those of its strategic third party suppliers, representing over 80% of the tobacco purchased by volume in 2022 (‘Tobacco Supply Chain’).
