The Surprisingly
Sustainable Case for Coal

So Far This Year



Used Globally to Power our Modern Lives

With coal so often miscast as a Hollywood villain, Peabody believes the story of global energy is not one of good versus evil. We believe in the Surprisingly Sustainable Case for Coal. It is a tale of the pursuit of two “goods” — affordable, reliable energy and reduced emissions.

Explore the Fundamental Facts of the Surprisingly Sustainable Case for Coal


The need for countries to access affordable and reliable energy, combined with the continued development of their economies, will result in persistently high coal demand for the foreseeable future.


Advanced coal technologies are part of the solution to meet global environmental goals, and continued development and deployment of these technologies will help drive down emissions.


A world that will use coal for many more decades needs sustainable coal companies that are financially responsible, insist on sustainable mining and encourage use of advanced technologies.

Peabody is the leading global pure-play coal company and a member of the Fortune 500, serving power and steel customers in more than 25 countries on six continents. The company offers significant scale, high-quality assets, and diversity in geography and products.
