BAT Sets 2050 Goals
BAT committed to reducing Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 50% by 2030 from a 2020 base year.
The tobacco company will also commit to reducing emissions by 50% by 2030 from a 2020 base year for Scope 3 emissions by partnering with suppliers and progressively transitioning from air to sea freight as a lower-carbon mode of transport.
Details were published in its Low-Carbon Transition Plan.
“We’re proud to take this latest step in our sustainability journey,” said Kingsley Wheaton, BAT’s Chief Growth Officer in a statement. “By outlining the measures we will take to live up to our Net Zero targets through our Low-Carbon Transition Plan, we’re demonstrating our continuing commitment to building A Better Tomorrow. As a global company, we know minimising impacts across our value chain is the right thing to do, as well as making sound business sense. That is why we have set stretching science-based climate-related targets and continue to embed sustainability across our business.”
