Our objective is to increase supply to and strengthen our presence in the premium, high-margin markets, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. We are growing the share of washed coal within our product portfolio, developing sales of premium sized coal and increasing the trading of semi-soft and hard coking coal with international and Russian metallurgical customers. Current investment in the development of new coal deposits is solely targeted at the most economically efficient projects. We also expect to maintain synergies from association with the Russian electric power industry by signing long-term contracts with energy producers.
Our overarching mission is to make people’s lives better
Coal is one of the world’s main sources of power. Fuelling our lives. Heating our homes. Keeping us warm in winter. Affordable and widely available, it brings light and heat to all four corners of the Earth, satisfying people’s basic needs even in remote and less developed regions.
Making our cities
brighter and bigger
As the world’s population grows, more and more people are living in urban areas. A major component of urban energy systems, coal will keep the bright lights on in the big cities for many years to come. Coal also fuels the production of cement, steel and glass – vital materials that form the living fabric of urban growth and infrastructure.
Making the world
In the world’s growing economies, coal is critical to the development of transport infrastructure because it is essential to the production of steel, aluminium and cement. Coal can also provide liquid fuel for cars and jets and generate power for electric vehicles. Meeting the energy needs of modern transport. Keeping people moving. Making the world go round.
