Warrior Met Coal Lowers Emissions by 13%

Warrior Met Coal, a supplier to the global steel industry, achieved a 13% reduction in total Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, plus a 16% reduction in methane emissions as compared to the 2021 baseline.

The company is a large-scale, low-cost producer and exporter of premium quality metallurgical coal, also known as hard-coking coal (HCC). It performs efficient longwall operations in underground mines in Alabama and reported 69% of the methane from its mines’ emissions were captured in 2022 for beneficial use.

Warrior Met Coal also destroys methane and converts it to a greenhouse gas (GHG) that has a lower global warming potential and optimizes its operational plans to reduce GHG emissions. 

Through the development of the Blue Creek Mine and the Mine 4 North reserves, the company plans on encountering less methane in the remaining reserves to ensure a reduction in emissions.

Details were published in its 2023 sustainability report.

“At Warrior we are fully committed to being a responsible corporate citizen to our employees, customers, communities, and other stakeholders,” said Walt Scheller, CEO of Warrior Met Coal, in a statement. “Operating as one of the world’s largest producers of premium quality steelmaking coal, we understand our responsibility to produce our products in a sustainable manner. We believe that our long-term success hinges on a trio of commitments: unwavering dedication to safety, proactive environmental stewardship, and a continuous investment in our employees and local communities.”
