British American Tobacco - Carbon Neutral Certification

Client: British American Tobacco

Cost Saving: N/a

Payback:  N/a

Service: PAS 2060 Carbon Neutral Certification

Project Background

British American Tobacco (BAT) operates 79 facilities across 4 global regions and aim to be carbon neutral across their own operations by 2030, and across their value chain by 2050. Significant progress had been made at many locations with some sites already declaring carbon neutrality.

Key Challenges

However, BAT needed to ensure that claims of carbon neutrality could stand up to 3rd party inspection and challenge and wished to implement a standardised approach to carbon neutral certification that they could promote and was guaranteed to be beyond reproach regardless of the location around the world.


ETS identified the PAS 2060 certification method as the most appropriate means to provide an internationally recognised and accepted certification standard to validate carbon neutrality. Initially undertaking the works for a western European location, the service was then provided for a Scandinavian site and then four more locations in the United States.

BAT have now accepted this standard for all their sites and will continue to certify new sites, and re-certify existing sites, to this comprehensive and globally accepted standard.
