BAT South Africa’s empowerment initiatives support previously disadvantaged individuals by providing training and education to unlock opportunities for self-improvement and self-sufficiency.
Empowerment focuses on providing training, education, and opportunities to black South Africans. Examples include scholarships and programmes supporting small businesses and promoting entrepreneurship, as well as our sustainable agricultural initiatives.
Given the large operational and commercial footprint of our business, we take our impact on society very seriously. We make a substantial contribution to the socio-economic development of South Africa through various programmes and initiatives.
