Science & Technology Report

2017/2018 edition


Our Science & Technology report explores our scientific breakthroughs, research priorities, and innovative pipeline of new category products.

Published every two years, the report encompasses our global R&D work and reinforces our purpose — to build a better tomorrow by reducing the health impact of our business through offering a greater choice of less risky products for our consumers. The reduced-risk potential of new category products needs to be supported by sound science, and this report explores our cutting-edge research into vapour, tobacco heating products and traditional and modern oral products.
