EDP joined Bettercoal, an international initiative to promote best practices and the integration of sustainability principles in the coal supply chain.


Bettercoal is a non-profit association created in 2012 by a group of companies of the electricity sector. Its mission is to promote the continuous improvement of environmental, social and ethical practices in the coal supply chain through the involvement of the different interested parties in complying with a code of conduct.
This code requires that mining companies comply with the rules of performance and conduct, the use of management systems, and there is the reporting and disclosure of good ethical practices, compliance with human and labour rights, health and safety prevention, and the management of social and environmental impacts.
The practices and performance of the mining companies will be audited in order to ensure compliance with the code and, if necessary, corrective and improvement plans will be established.
The members of Bettercoal are currently, and besides EDP, Dong, DRAX, EDF, Enel, Engie, ESB, Fortum, Gas Natural Fenosa, Iberdrola, RWE, Uniper and Vattenfall.
