Our goal at BAT is to transform tobacco through science and innovation, both by creating exciting new-to-world reduced risk tobacco and nicotine products and by completing the science to establish where these products sit on the risk continuum.

The risk continuum stretches from the very high risks known to be associated with cigarette smoking to the much lower risks associated with nicotine replacement therapies. Find out more about our world-leading science and potentially reduced risk products below.

95%

Less toxicants in ePen 3

Comparison to 1R6F ref cigarette and vapour from Vype ePen 3, ref to 9 harmful components World Health Organization recommends to reduce in cigarette smoke. This quality does not necessarily mean this product is less harmful than tobacco products

90-95%

Reduced toxicants in glo

Comparison of smoke from a 3R4F reference cigarette (approx. 9 mg tar) and vapour from heated tobacco in glo, in terms of the 9 harmful components the World Health Organization recommends to reduce in cigarette smoke. This quality does not necessarily mean this product is less harmful than other tobacco products
