BHP Quits World Coal Assoc. Over Climate Change Policies (Int'l)
BHP Billiton
Date: 2018-04-06
Following-up on our Dec. 22, 2017 coverage, Australian global mining giant BHP Billiton is reporting its final decision to leave the World Coal Association (WCA) over differences on climate change. Although largely out of mining coal for power plants, BHP is the world's largest exporter of coal for steel-making.

BHP came under pressure from Australian green groups last year to leave any industry associations with policies that fail to match the company's support of the 2015 Paris Climate Accord. The company indicated it will continue to work with the Minerals Council of Australia in relation to its updated energy and climate policy position.
