PTC lights up 3,000 lives

BAT brings light to 3,000 lives in Pakistan

How Pakistan Tobacco Company (PTC), has brought the gift of light to a remote village.

Watch video 31 March 2017
Pakistan Tobacco Company (PTC), our subsidiary in Pakistan, has brought light to a remote village in the north west of the country. PTC partnered with the government of the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to provide solar energy kits for around 3,000 people in the village of Peerano Bala. Nestled in a valley between two mountains, Peerano Bala is cut off from proper roads and has always been without electricity. PTC sources a large proportion of its tobacco from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and this initiative is an example of its commitment to give back to the communities in which it operates. The impact of the project is demonstrated in this video.

Graduates from around the world who touched down in London in February to take part in BAT’s first ever Graduate Academy tell us why they were excited to be there.

The action-packed two-week academy is the formal learning element of our Global Graduate Programme to develop a next generation of leaders for BAT. More than 50 graduates – representing 18 different nationalities – took part in the Academy. Before flying in for ten days of stretch and challenge, they were asked to submit videos on what excited them most about taking part in the Academy. Within hours the videos came streaming in, shot with background views that reflected the diversity of the graduate’s end markets: from white-sand beaches to glass-walled cityscapes. Common themes include being excited about meeting new people, engaging with senior leaders – including our Chief Executive and HR Director – and building international networks.
