"At BAT, our own commitment to change is the seed of our transformation success. For us, BEE is more than just compliance. It is about harnessing the diversity of our people to grow and strengthen our business. Doing the right thing, exercising our responsibility to society, and unleashing the talents of our people is integral to our business strategy. The scorecard is an objective measure of our progress and a public demonstration of our commitment to transformation."
Johnny Moloto
Head of External Affairs

Our company transformation is underpinned by the standards, values and principles contained in our Standards of Business Conduct, Business Principles, and Guiding Principles.

We believe that South Africa can achieve an adaptable, sustainable and growing economy if it harnesses the strengths of all its people and communities, and uses diversity as a catalyst to solve social challenges and enhance economic performance.

British American Tobacco South Africa’s approach to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) includes initiatives in respect of employment equity, skills development, preferential procurement, enterprise development, and corporate social investment.
