Community Partnership Program
“At Peabody, we view good corporate citizenship as making a positive difference in every community where we operate.”
- CEO and Chairman Greg Boyce
Peabody Energy’s mission as a community partner is to improve lives through strategic social investments that empower communities; educate the next generation; restore, conserve and beautify the environment; and engage our employees to give back.
Peabody believes we earn our license to operate through world-class safety, social responsibility and good neighbor practices where we live and work.
Through philanthropic partnerships, community outreach endeavors and robust employee volunteerism, the Peabody Community Partnership Program provides millions of dollars to charitable and community organizations.
Peabody focuses its social capital in two primary ways: Directing human and financial resources toward areas of identified need, and investing in partnerships where we can make a measurable, positive difference in the “energy” of a community.
Education of the Next Generation
Peabody seeks to strengthen academic support services so that all students can become productive members of society. Focus areas include early childhood “whole-child” services, teacher training and professional development, college access and completion programs, and educator recognition.
The Peabody Energy Leaders in Education program also honors K-12 educators from public and private schools through a competitive community nomination process. The Leaders program currently runs in a number of regions where Peabody has operations.
Peabody also seeks out educational mentoring opportunities for our employees and has robust scholarship programs in place to encourage careers in the mining industry.
Peabody invests in service agencies and organizations that promote health and human services, foster civic affairs and economic development, deliver youth programs, and strengthen arts and culture. These lasting alliances help Peabody to enrich society, champion economic prosperity and create a better quality of life.
Environmental Restoration, Conservation and Beautification
Across all our operations, we partner with organizations that conserve, beautify and restore the environment. We work to engage our employees in environmental stewardship through collaborations with communities and classrooms.
“I believe the visionary leadership of Peabody Chairman and CEO Gregory Boyce has been a transforming force in the St. Louis community to demonstrate corporate responsibility to invest and share corporate assets in partnership with others.”
- Dr. Michelle Emmerich, Principal of Notre Dame High School
