WCM believes that the social licence to construct and operate Woodhouse Colliery is of utmost importance and takes community responsibilities very seriously. Our commitment to carbon offsetting is a core part of our Corporate Social Responsibility policy and will form a key element of the WCM Foundation.
WCM has worked with the local community for more than eight years, with extensive engagement events and outreach – including newsletters and social media content. We will continue to fully engage with the local community and shall promote a series of funded local schemes and initiatives over the life of the mine.
Woodhouse Colliery will be the lowest impact metallurgical coal mine in the world, setting the standard for all other projects to seek to meet. This includes the most advanced methane elimination measures to remove at least 95% of all methane entering the atmosphere.
