Commercial Partners

Both the Commercial Partners and Sponsors for this conference have been selected as they are key stakeholders in the fight against serious and organised crime. Typically, the products they produce are a target for criminal activity or they provide solutions to the challanges facing EU and global law enforcement agencies in this context.

The conference programme has been compiled between the British Chamber and Europol, while the Commercial Partners add value with their expertise and experience in business-specific areas.

British American Tobacco

British American Tobacco

British American Tobacco is the world’s second largest quoted tobacco group by global market share and employs more than 55,000 people worldwide. We believe that the illegal trade in smuggled and counterfeit tobacco products is deeply damaging to society in general and to our own legitimate business. We are working through a Cooperation Agreement with the European Commission and the Member States of the European Union to collectively tackle the problem of illicit trade in tobacco. BAT companies have signed Memoranda of Understanding and industry agreements with Customs in 35 countries to tackle illicit trade.
