The Colombian Mining Association (CMA) has joined the World Coal Association (WCA) as an associate member. The CMA is the major mining association in Colombia, representing explorers, producers and providers of goods and services to the mining sector – including 92% of the country’s coal production.
“We are proud to welcome the CMA to the WCA as our newest associate member and we are looking forward to working with them on issues ranging from sustainable mining practice to climate change,” said the WCA’s CEO, Benjamin Sporton.
“As a major exporter of coal, WCA is committed to engaging more deeply with the Colombian coal industry, national and regional stakeholders,” continued Sporton.
“The members of the WCA believe in a sustainable future for coal. This future is founded in operational excellence by integrating sustainability across our entire business model from our own operations through to supporting new technologies for coal utilization.”
The WCA is a global industry association. Its members include major international coal producers and stakeholders.
