This year’s 120 Coal Plant Developers List - an analysis.

On October 4th, 2018, Urgewald has revealed this year’s 120 Coal Plant Developers List. An analysis of the global coal power expansion pipeline

Every new coal plant is a further nail in the coffin of the Paris Climate Agreement.

Investments in new coal power capacity are incompatible with the Paris climate goals as each new coal plant locks-in high CO2 emissions for decades to come. This database

identifies the world’s top 120 coal plant developers. The divestment of these companies is crucial if we want to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
