Will British American Tobacco’s share price go up in smoke?

BATS

You should consider whether you understand how spread bets and CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money. Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation also declared last month that both tobacco products and e-cigarettes “pose risks” to health and the “safest approach is not to use either”. What have BAT’s past results been like? In its half-year results, BAT reported that total cigarette volumes fell 3.5%, in line with the overall industry, to 336 billion sticks. However, “encouraging growth” in new categories, primarily tobacco heated products, helped overall revenues rise 4.6% to £12.1bn. This is where the BAT share price will rise or fall. If there is continued negative headlines over what are supposed to be its “less risky” products, then its future outlook will be cloudy. But if health fears decrease then it could really light up.

BC Community Bat Program asking you to look out for bats - My Comox Valley Now

BATS

WNS is a fungal disease responsible for the death of millions of bats in eastern North America and researchers say it’s spreading on the west coast. Bats here in the province are at risk for the disease which has near 100% mortality rate for some species, including the Little Brown Bat. Although devastating for bats, WNS does not affect humans. The BC Community Bat Program says while bats are generally hibernating out of sight this time of year, not every winter bat sighting signals disaster. Bat carcasses will be submitted for testing for white-nose syndrome and would provide the earliest indication of the presence of the disease in BC.”. If you see a dead bat, report it to the BC Community Bat Program (www.bcbats.ca, [email protected], or 1-855-922-2287 ext.24) as soon as possible.

British American Tobacco Recognised as Global Leader for Engaging Its Supply Chain on Climate Change

BATS

LONDON, Feb. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- British American Tobacco (BAT) has been identified as a global leader for engaging with its suppliers on climate change, being awarded a position on the Supplier Engagement Leaderboard compiled by global environmental impact non-profit organisation CDP. They were given a Supplier Engagement Rating based on answers to questions about governance, targets, scope 3 emissions, value chain engagement of their response to the CDP 2019 climate change questionnaire and their overall CDP climate change score. Simon Cleverly, Group Head of Corporate Affairs at BAT, said: "Climate change is a global issue and multi-stakeholder collaboration to address its impacts and find innovative new solutions for a low carbon economy is essential. Partnering with suppliers and other stakeholders across our value chain is a key element of our mission to reach our science-based targets and I'm delighted that our work in this area has been recognised by inclusion on the CDP Supplier Engagement Leaderboard." Given that supply chain emissions are on average 5.5 times as high as a company's operational emissions, this couldn't be more crucial. If we are to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement and decarbonise the economy, then other companies learning from these leaders and engaging their suppliers is going to be vital."

Bat meat still popular in parts of Indonesia, despite coronavirus fears

BATS

(Reuters) - Bat meat is still popular in some parts of Indonesia, despite research suggesting the coronavirus spreading from China might have originated in bats before being passed on to humans. Bats are traditionally eaten by the Minahasan people from North Sulawesi in the form of a curry-like dish called Paniki. "It (the coronavirus) has not affected sales," said bat seller Stenly Timbuleng at his stall in Tomohon, a city in North Sulawesi, south of the provincial capital of Manado. None has been reported in Indonesia, but the outbreak has prompted many Manadonese restaurants in the capital, Jakarta, to take bats off the menu. For Manadonese Jufry Mantak, the links between the coronavirus and his favourite dish have not put him off.
