If you ever needed proof of how much the coal industry gives back, look no further than the stories we have for you this month.
Where do we start? The billions of dollars that coal puts into the economy or the thousands of jobs it creates. Or what about the support for countless community groups, sporting organisations, schools, medical services and charities.
Then there’s the contributions that will make a difference on a global scale such as Glencore’s CTSCo project. Investment in CCUS technology will play an important part in achieving global climate goals and Glencore are leading the way.
Also investing in the future is the Queensland Minerals & Energy Academy. Their highly successful programs place students onto pathways into rewarding and long-term careers.
Do you think our industry might be just a tad underappreciated?
