Sustainable development

For RTCA, sustainable development is about acting responsibly and managing risks so the environment and the communities in which we operate are protected for future generations.

Mining and producing coal can make a huge contribution to present and future generations through the supply of affordable and reliable energy, local employment opportunities and support for associated businesses. However, if not managed properly, our activities can negatively impact the local environment and communities. Therefore, we are fully committed to mitigating potential adverse impacts, ensuring our communities benefit from the value we generate, and responsibly managing all aspects of our operations.

Our values of safety, teamwork, respect, integrity and excellence are expressed through our business principles, policies and standards. We set these out in our global code of business conduct, The way we work. Our values underpin the way we manage the economic, social and environmental effects of our operations, and how we govern our business.
