Whitehaven Coal statement on Ukraine

Following discussions with the Australian Government, Whitehaven will contribute to Australia’s package of humanitarian assistance to Ukraine through supply of a shipment of thermal coal to support Ukrainian energy security and independence. 

Whitehaven is proud to be a part of this humanitarian effort and to help deliver the inputs for essential energy and heating in circumstances of extreme and ongoing suffering for the people of Ukraine.

In a very tight supply market, Whitehaven has been able to commit this important shipment while ensuring contracted customer demand is met.

Whitehaven will work closely with the Australian Government and one of its key supply chain partners, Trafigura, to ensure the prompt delivery of the cargo.

Additionally, Whitehaven will also contribute A$250,000 to the Australian Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.
