Renewable energy is the key to our country's energy independence. But coal companies and politicians are holding us back.


Coal expansion by the Philippines’ biggest energy companies will hinder the country’s transition to a low carbon future, and can lock the Philippines into at least two more decades of overreliance on fossil fuels.

This briefing paper details how four of the country’s biggest energy companies—San Miguel Corporation (SMC); Aboitiz & Co., Inc. (Aboitiz); Meralco PowerGen Corporation (Mgen); and DMCI Holdings, Inc. (DMCI)—are set to substantially increase their coal portfolios, more than doubling the country’s current coal capacity should all their proposed coal projects push through.
