Energy efficiency

BAT Brasil prioritizes the use of renewable energy sources in all its operations

BAT Brasil has a historical concern to reduce increasingly the impact of its operations on the environment - which necessarily involves the conscious consumption and the choice of their energy matrixes. The company's demand is great and constant, due to its large manufacturing operations and reach of its operations in the country.

Aware of the impact that it would cause, BAT Brasil prioritizes the use of renewable sources. Main raw material for power generation in its plants, the wood used by BAT Brasil is reforested wood from three  farms. All of them have environmental certifications.

Energy efficiency is also present in the BAT Brasil fleet, that meets the tobacco department and sales and distribution. Over the past few years, the company is gradually replacing their vehicles with ones that use renewable fuels.

Moreover, BAT Brasil also invests in technologies to achieve a more sustainable consumption. The factory in Uberlândia (MG), for example, was equipped with natural lighting systems for use of sunlight, which contributes significantly to the reduction of energy costs in an area of 10,000 m².
