BAT Nigeria said it has invested millions of dollars at its solar plant, generating an average of 3,200 kWh per day and reducing carbon emissions by an estimated 650 tonnes.

The state-of-the-art solar power plant at the Ibadan manufacturing facility, it stated, was a significant investment in renewable energy which demonstrates its commitment to reducing its environmental impact and supporting the government’s environmental objectives.

In a statement, it revealed that the solar initiative directly contributes to the national goals of cleaner energy and reduced emissions.

“This forward-thinking approach not only benefits the environment by promoting cleaner air and combating climate change but also strengthens BAT Nigeria’s position as a responsible corporate citizen within Nigeria,” it said.

It added that the federal government’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions is evident in its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement, aiming for net-zero emissions by 2060. These NDCs include concrete steps like ending gas flaring by 2030, promoting efficient gas generation, and achieving 30% energy efficiency by 2030.

Director of External Affairs, BAT West and Central Africa, Odiri Erewa-Meggison, said the company aims to leverage solar power as a catalyst for socio-economic development.

This includes providing access to clean energy solutions that improve livelihoods, enhance productivity, and drive inclusive growth across Nigeria.

She said, “Our commitment to responsible business practices extends beyond environmental initiatives. BAT actively contributes to Nigeria’s economic growth through job creation, tax contributions, and support for local businesses.”
