Abstract This work presents the China’s coal supply chains and environmental and social footprints associated with them. Those impacts are based on a life cycle of coal from cradle-to-gate. Several environmental footprints are considered, such as carbon, water, nitrogen, sulphur and other, as well as social footprints including number of accidents and radioactivity footprints. At last, several currently used footprints prevention steps are analysed within China, such as CO2 sequestration, desulphurisation and denitration.
