Centennial Coal Smart Mining Networking Event

Featuring Donna Dryden, General Manager Sustainability, Centennial Coal


Global demand for coal is strong, as is demand for a more sustainable mining industry. Centennial Coal manages the balance and it's their vision to be the leading sustainable Australian coal supplier. Centennial Coal is already a major fuel supplier for New South Wales energy industry, accounting for about 40% of the state's coal-fired electricity, and supplies to other domestic and export markets.

At this event, Donna will explore Centennial Coal's upcoming priorities and projects, current sustainability initiatives and why our collective response to current and emerging environmental issues may well be the greatest challenge and the greatest opportunity for the future of the mining industry.

  • Learn more about Centennial Coal's sustainability initiatives
  • Hear Donna's expert opinion about the emerging opportunities and challenges for coal mining
  • Build relationships with senior decision-makers from the New South Wales mining industry and METS community
