The legislative changes around emission of greenhouse gases is becoming more onerous as the South African government implements the Paris Agreement, diversified black-owned resources group Exxaro said on Monday, when the coal-mining major announced that “good progress” had been made finalising its replacement black economic empowerment (BEE) transaction. In reiterating Earthlife Africa Johannesburg’s successful legal proceedings to set aside the environmental authorisation for the company’s proposed 600 MW Thabametsi coal-fired power station near Lephalale, Exxaro said it would continue monitoring the progress of this legal procedure at a time when the Environmental Affairs Minister would be considering a climate impact assessment report in making the revised environmental authorisation determination for the project.
