As a responsible business, the JT Group is committed to protecting the environment.
By reducing our environmental impacts, we are able to conserve resources, improve performance and enhance our reputation, and manage costs. All of this supports the environment and the sustainability of our business. This ethos is at the heart of our approach to environmental management, laid out in our Company Environmental Charter.
The Charter is supported by the JT Group’s Long-Term Environment Plan 2020, which presents our targets for greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction and our approach to managing water, waste, and biodiversity. We are pleased to report that our target for total GHG emissions reduction set out in the plan was achieved ahead of schedule in 2017. Looking beyond 2020, we are building our next Environment Plan, which will address energy, GHG emissions, natural resources (water and wood), and waste, with clear objectives and targets for each topic.
