Coal Industry Advisory Board

The Coal Industry Advisory Board (CIAB) is a group of high level executives from coal-related industrial enterprises, established by the International Energy Agency (IEA) in July 1979 to provide advice to the IEA on a wide range of issues relating to coal.

Currently, CIAB Members are drawn from 13 countries accounting for just under 80% of world coal production and coal consumption. Members are drawn from major coal producers, electricity producers, other coal consuming industries and coal related organisations. Mr. Peter Freyberg, Head of Coal Assets, Glencore, is the CIAB Chairman and is supported by an Executive Committee.
