Glencore CEO Ivan Glasenberg says the Switzerland-based miner’s decision to cap annual coal production is likely to put upward pressure on coal prices, particular if global demand continues to increase. He notes that many other mining companies are also curbing coal output or seeking to divest coal assets. Dominic O’Kane of JP Morgan agrees that Glencore’s move could bolster coal prices, as well Glencore shareholders’ returns. Glencore has indicated that it has no plans to sell any of its coal mines or buy additional mines, although it has not ruled out increasing its stake in existing joint ventures.
