Celtic Energy produces coal to meet the needs of society. The company has been doing so in a sustainable way since its inception and has been successful in supplying indigenous coal to the benefit of the UK economy with minimum impact on the environment and health. The advantages to south Wales are enormous in that highly skilled and well paid jobs are maintained and the area benefits from employment stability.
There is strong evidence that stable employment is important to health, and job opportunities for local people and increased financial input into the community as a whole leads to improved material circumstances and reduces deprivation, both important factors in the general health of the community. What is more, customers in south Wales are assured that there is a stable source of supply of coal for power generation, steel making, cement manufacture and housholds, adding to the sense of economic well-being.
