Corporate social investment

Helping to make a difference. Our companies have long supported local community and charitable projects.

We approach corporate social investment (CSI) as an end in itself, rather than as a way to promote ourselves.

Our companies have always been closely identified with the communities where they operate.

Local community needs are as diverse as the communities themselves. That’s why we manage our CSI activities at a local level, ensuring we support the most appropriate projects and maximise their value.


Our Workplace Giving Programme allows employees of British American Tobacco Australia to make regular donations direct from their pre-tax pay to their choice of eight employee-nominated charities who do important work on welfare issues, the environment, family and youth development and disability support.

These charities are: Mission Australia, Conservation Volunteers Australia, Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter, Northcott, and Assistance Dogs Australia.

British American Tobacco Australia employees choose to make a difference through our Workplace Giving Program either through payroll contributions or through approved on-site fundraising programs.


We provide all our employees one day’s paid leave and flexible working arrangements to enable them to participate in volunteer work.
