At it’s General Assembly on June 9 2020, the WFPHA approved a new environmental policy, “A Call to Ban Coal for Electricity Production”.

This resolution aims to describe the costly and detrimental health effects of coal use for electricity and urge nations to rapidly transition to healthier, renewable sources of energy. The contribution of coal fired energy generation to climate change renders coal a lethal product, which establishes the case for agencies centered on promoting human health to facilitate its ban.
