To completely contribute to tobacco harm reduction, reduced-risk products (RRPs) must have their reduced-risk status, when compared to smoking, adequately shown by rigorous science. BAT has made enormous expenditures in research and development in order to deliver innovations that fulfil or anticipate consumer preferences and drive business growth across all categories. The RRPs are the main focus of its investment, but it is also conducting R&D into its traditional cigarette improvements.
The latest clinical trial for BAT’s tobacco heating product, glo, is the first to prove that switching to glo exclusively instead of continuing to smoke is comparable to quitting smoking. To make tobacco harm reduction a reality, scientific substantiation is required for its New Category goods. With their world-class science, they are proudly leading the way.
BAT has also established a set of scientific tests to evaluate the RRPs’ reduced-risk potential in comparison to cigarettes. This entails examining everything from how consumers use a product and the composition of the vapour it creates, to the vapour’s biological impact on cells in laboratory studies, and, finally, the potential impact of the product’s availability on consumer health.
