North Coal is committed to excellence in environmental performance. We manage our operations in a manner that is resource-efficient, minimizes our impact upon the environment and work closely with our communities and Indigenous people to ensure their values are reflected in our practices.

Environmental management, both during and after operations, is a key element of North Coal’s business philosophy. At all stages of development, there is a commitment to ensuring that any potential risks to the environment are identified and suitable controls put in place to mitigate their effects. At all times, North Coal will comply with all applicable environmental laws, regulations, and requirements

Diversity and Inclusion

North Coal is committed to an equitable, diverse, and inclusive workplace that embraces the uniqueness of individuals. Diverse and inclusive teams have a positive impact on our operations and lead to a better company. It is also important for our team to reflect the diversity of the communities and stakeholders we work with.

Workplace diversity is understanding, accepting, and valuing differences between people; differences including age, ethnicity, Indigenous origin or heritage, gender, physical attributes, beliefs, language, sexual orientation, education, and experience. Workplace inclusion builds a collaborative, supportive, and respectful environment that increases the participation and contribution of all employees.

North Coal is and will continue to be a diverse and inclusive place of employment. We are constantly learning and evolving to be more inclusive of all individuals. We believe all employees deserve a work environment that values and respects individuals for their talents, skills, and abilities and that such an environment benefits the collective.


We believe in investing in communities. Through the donation of time, talents, and dollars, our team gives back to the communities in which we operate.

North Coal supports community initiatives, events, and programming that make the places we live better. Initiatives include amateur sports, rod and gun clubs, fish and wildlife organizations, chambers of commerce, service groups, and more.

Healthy, vibrant communities and collaborative partnerships are fundamental to the ongoing success of North Coal. If you’d like to discuss how we can collectively make our communities better places to live and work, please send us an email at
