What is the Coal Policy Tool?

  • It counts, compares and rates the coal policies adopted by banks, (re)insurers, asset owners and asset managers.
  • It enables clients, media, financial institutions and other stakeholders to easily navigate the coal policy jungle.
  • It aims at ensuring high quality coal policies that effectively contribute to keep global warming below 1.5°C.

Please note that due to a methodological review in April 2023, the number of financial institutions assessed has been reduced. This may explain some discrepancies with previous statistics, particularly in terms of the number of policies assessed. See “Methodology” for more details.

The Coal Policy Tool is updated on a continuous basis. Last policy update: 18 July 2023 with Abeille Assurances.
