Beyond its commercial success, he said, “The BAT factory in Ibadan has also been a champion of environmental sustainability. The factory has implemented a comprehensive environmental management system, incorporating stringent measures to reduce its carbon footprint. These efforts have resulted in significant reductions in energy consumption, water usage, and waste generation.”
