In 2016, Peabody’s successful land stewardship achieved 1.8 acres of restoration for every acre disturbed in mining activities. The company restored 6,450 acres of mined lands into rangeland, wildlife habitat, hardwood forests, prime farmland and wetlands, including 1,220 acres of forested area, 52 acres of wetlands and more than 10 miles of high-quality streams. In addition, Peabody planted 752,635 trees, 70 percent more than the prior year.
Peabody also works to improve lives and livelihoods in our communities through economic opportunities and our charitable giving programs, and in 2016 we injected $9.7 billion in direct and indirect economic benefits into the local, state and provincial communities where we operate.
