Country Prioritisation Strategy
Bettercoal Members purchase coal from across the globe and therefore connect with mine operators in many different countries. While the long-term goal of Bettercoal is to engage with all its Members' coal suppliers, the organisation requires a pragmatic approach that allows the allocation of limited resources to Bettercoal's priorities.
This strategy helps Bettercoal determine which coal producers to engage with and when to engage them. Bettercoal's priority countries are determined annually; however, Bettercoal recognises that coal markets are dynamic and coal supplies can shift unpredictably and, therefore, we will also ensure flexibility in the strategy that allows new or different countries and suppliers to be prioritised when needed.
The Country-Prioritisation Strategy was approved by the Board of Directors on the 30th of March 2017 and is available for download here.
