Progress report on corporate responsibility in the coal supply chain 2017

In 2014, the energy companies Essent (now RWE), EPZ, Nuon, E.ON Benelux (now Uniper) and GDF SUEZ (now ENGIE) signed a covenant with the Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Lilianne Ploumen and the Minister of Economic Affairs, Henk Kamp, which confirmed concrete agreements on the efforts of the Dutch government and the energy companies that should lead to improvements in the coal supply chain. Bettercoal, the European initiative which aim at improvements in the coal supply chain, plays an important role in this. This report is the third progress report on the voluntary agreement’s implementation.
