Sustainable Agriculture and Farmer Livelihoods
At BAT, we are committed to working to enable prosperous livelihoods for all farmers who supply our tobacco leaf, benefiting rural communities and the environment.
Tobacco leaf is the most essential part of our products, so the farmers who grow it are absolutely crucial to the success of our business. We have a long and proud history in agriculture, working as partners with over 100,000 farmers worldwide, providing them with on-the-ground advice and support.
In recent years there has been considerable debate about the social, environmental and economic impact of tobacco growing. At BAT, our approach is designed to address the impacts and challenges. We are committed to a future where all our farmers have the resources they need to be successful and to ensuring farming communities can thrive.
