Being a good corporate citizen and a responsible company is not only about contributing to the community in an economic sense. It means playing a part in the community in which we operate and in which our employees live and work.
Our approach to corporate citizenship is shaped by the recognition that businesses are only as successful as the communities within which they exist.
At British American Tobacco New Zealand we seek to positively impact the community. We have a history of corporate giving and have a policy which outlines our criteria for charitable and community support.
We also recognise that good corporate citizenship works best when there is employee involvement. To this end we support and provide opportunities for our employees to take part in community activities.
We focus our corporate social investment (CSI) activities around the theme of empowerment, focusing on providing people with training, education and development opportunities.
The British American Tobacco Group preparares a consolidated social report at a global level. As a result individual country reporting is no longer undertaken.
