Peabody Statement on EPA’s Proposed Repeal of the Clean Power Plan

Peabody issued the following statement based on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed repeal of the Clean Power Plan.

We encourage continued steps to protect affordable, reliable and resilient coal-fueled generation for American families and businesses, and support repeal of regulations that would have raised power costs and damaged reliability with no significant benefit. We believe technology is the best path to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and continue to advocate for high-efficiency, low-emissions technologies along with carbon capture, use and storage over time.

Peabody is the world’s largest private-sector coal company. The company is also a leading voice in advocating for sustainable mining, energy access and clean coal technologies. Peabody serves metallurgical and thermal coal customers in more than 25 countries on five continents.
