Coal and the SDGs

(Posted on 31/05/18)

The World Coal Association (WCA) is holding a series of roundtables throughout 2018 to explore coal and the UN Sustainable Development Goals SDGs).

This series of roundtables will bring together participants with different perspectives, covering a number of geographic regions and addressing the entire lifecycle of coal, from mining through to its use. WCA, in consultation with stakeholders and informed by their feedback and recommendations, will be working to explore the impacts, implications and expectations around coal and the SDGs.

The kick-off roundtable took place in London on 26 March, where it brought together a range of stakeholders for a high-level discussion on coal and the SDGs.

The WCA is a global industry association formed of major international coal producers and stakeholders. The WCA works to demonstrate and gain acceptance for the fundamental role coal plays in achieving a sustainable and lower carbon energy future. Membership is open to companies and not-for-profits with a stake in the future of coal from anywhere in the world, with member companies represented at Chief Executive or Chairman level.
