Bettercoal aims to promote the continuous improvement of corporate responsibility in the coal supply chain, with a specific focus on the mining operations themselves.
Through the effective implementation of a comprehensive program, Bettercoal can become an important vehicle for positive change in coal supply chains. Bettercoal recognizes that third party assessments are only one tool to drive improvement. The organization is moving away from basic assessments and towards risk based auditing and continuous improvement programs.
To this end, BetterCoal is looking to work with a limited number of industry experts and partners rather than solely assessors. RCS Global is working closely with BetterCoal in such expert capacity and we are an approved Bettercoal program assessor.
We have the experience and recognized expertise in responsible mining practices in industrial mining operations and full knowledge of coal specific responsible sourcing requirements to ensure our Bettercoal assessments are delivered efficiently and effectively. We are not check-list assessors, we have the ability to partner with mining operations, helping them continuously improve their ethical, social and environmental practices.
