Corporate Governance

Responsible corporate governance is a major priority for Peabody Energy.

A commitment to the highest principles of ethical behavior has defined the company long before corporate reform became a global watchword. This commitment to integrity is embodied in Peabody's continual review of its corporate governance program to ensure that it reflects what we believe are best practices and promotes the best interests of Peabody and its stakeholders. Peabody's Mission Statement is displayed prominently throughout our operations to guide difficult decision making. And our key governance practices are outlined in our Corporate Governance Guidelines, committee charters, and Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.
