BAT Bangladesh is the only Bangladeshi company to get the prestigious Asia Corporate Excellence and Sustainability (ACES) Award 2022 in the category of ‘Top Sustainability Advocates in Asia’.
The company has been recognized for its outstanding contributions to Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) standards.
Since its inception in 2014, the Aces Awards have risen to become one of Asia’s most coveted honors. The Asia Corporate Excellence and Sustainability Awards (ACES) has particularly identified the creme de la creme businesses as the deserved award recipients for its ninth edition, in order to honor the brilliant innovation, talents, and perseverance of industry trailblazers.
All prize recipients went through a comprehensive screening and judging process that lasted nine months and involved numerous paperwork submissions and finalist interviews.
“It fills us with immense pride to have won this global award for two consecutive years. Such recognition exemplifies our dedication to collaborating with communities and stakeholders to create a better tomorrow.”– Shehzad Munim, Managing Director of BAT Bangladesh.
BAT Bangladesh has embraced sustainability in its operations for 112 years.
The company’s ESG goals are to eliminate unnecessary single-use plastic, achieve zero waste-to-landfill, recycle water, and achieve carbon neutrality. By 2030, the company hopes to be carbon-neutral, with 100% renewable power, and to have net-zero emissions across its value chain by 2050.
