Peabody Statement on the Administration’s Withdrawal from Paris Accord

Peabody supports the Administration’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. We believe that abiding by the accord, without significant changes, would have substantially impacted the U.S. economy, increased electricity costs and required the power sector to rely on less diverse and more intermittent energy. Peabody continues to advocate for greater use of technology to meet the world’s need for energy security, economic growth and environmental solutions through high-efficiency, low-emissions coal-fueled power plants and research and development funding for carbon capture.

Peabody is the leading global pure-play coal company, serving power and steel customers in more than 25 countries on six continents. Peabody offers significant scale, high-quality assets, and diversity in geography and products. Peabody is guided by seven core values: safety, customer focus, leadership, people, excellence, integrity and sustainability.
