BAT Bangladesh has received the prestigious Social Caring Pledge (SCP) Awards 2021 in the categories of "Green Excellence" and "ESG Investment Excellence” for exceptional commitment towards Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) practices.

The Social Enterprise Research Academy (SERA) presents the SCP Awards to those business leaders and organisations that have demonstrated exceptional performance and perseverance in promoting the UN Global Compact's six core principles through their social caring attitudes, said a press release.

BAT Bangladesh Managing Director Shehzad Munim said, “We're pleased to have won the SCP Awards in two categories this year. In all our actions, we keep ESG at the front and centre. Such widespread acknowledgment of our work constantly motivates us to collaborate with communities and stakeholders to build a better tomorrow.”

BATB’s flagship ESG initiative, the country's largest private-sector-led afforestation programme, has given approximately 115 million seedlings to beneficiaries free of cost.
