Labour: the average number of employees in tobacco enterprises to measure the input of human resources. See details in section 4.1 in the manuscript. Energy: the total amount of energy consumed by tobacco companies for production activities. Outputs IVA: industrial value added is the economic output of tobacco enterprises. CO2 emission: CO2 emissions is the environmental impact indicator. CO2 emissions are calculated based on the energy consumption of various types of energy consumed by the company. The calculation are shown in section 4.2 in the manuscript. Data sources The basic data of the 18 domestic tobacco enterprises come from the China Tobacco Statistical Yearbook and the Tobacco Energy Statistical Report, while the data on the four multinational tobacco companies come from the companies’ annual financial reports, sustainability reports, and climate change reports on the carbon disclosure project (CDP). In addition, in order to eliminate the impact of exchange rate and inflation factors, the data in this article is uniformly converted to the 2010 constant price in millions of dollars according to the Purchasing Power Evaluation (PPP) Index published by the World Bank (Inklaar and Timmer, 2008).
