What is a Bettercoal Supplier?

Bettercoal Suppliers are coal mining companies that have committed to improving their Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance by assessing their operations against the principles of the Bettercoal Code. Each Supplier undergoes an independent assessment to see how closely they meet the requirements of our international best practice code, and commits to improving their operations in line with our custom built Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP) for that Supplier based on the findings of our assessment.

Bettercoal focuses on ESG topics as these are primary areas where coal mining can minimise negative impacts to the environment and its people, including communities and workers. Positive ESG performance can drive more sustainable economic growth and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals while minimising the negative impacts on the global use of fossil fuels. Coal producers who commit to Continuous Improvement by signing the Letter of Commitment become Bettercoal Suppliers.
