The Bettercoal Standard is called the Code.
Since its launch in 2013, it has become the internationally recognised Standard for assessing, assuring, sustaining and continually improving stringent ethical performance across the coal mining supply chain.
The Code is founded on 12 Principles which have, at their core, the 3 pillars of ESG: Environment, Social and Governance.
Businesses in the coal sector that want to ensure the coal producers they engage with are working to the highest possible standards, join Bettercoal as Members.
Bettercoal and its Members work to encourage increasing numbers of coal producers, from across the globe, to commit to the Bettercoal Code and so increase the network of businesses working towards a global, responsible coal supply chain.
