The article contains the issues of coal mining and its uses for energy generation in the context of the global energy transition. It is shown that the processes of decarbonation of the economy can significantly affect the coal industry, the risks associated with the possible introduction of a carbon tax, reduced demand and limited production of fossil fuels are increasing. The trends in the development of coal policy in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation are shown, the impact of coal mining, transportation, and use on socio-economic development, energy supply, employment of the population of the coastal Arctic territories is analyzed. In order to reduce and compensate for the negative impact of the coal industry on the climate system, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, projects are being justified for the use of cleaner coal-fired power generation technologies, including coal gasification, technologies for capturing and dumping carbon emissions into underground horizons, as well as projects aimed at absorbing and compensating CO2 emissions by land-use and forestry facilities.
