Our commitments are shaped by internal policies and procedures that outline our approach to sustainability, as well as external sustainability-related initiatives and regulatory requirements. We work to comply with all regulatory requirements, and strive to go beyond them by committing to voluntary international standards and sustainability-related initiatives.
Our values guide every decision we make as a company and as individual employees. They describe what is most important to us, and set the bar for how we behave in our interactions with society, with our business partners and with one another.
We are committed to responsible business practices in all aspects of our activities. The Safety and Sustainability (S&S) Committee of the Board of Directors provides policy direction and monitors the Company’s environmental, social and safety performance. The Corporate Environment and Risk Management Committee (CERMC), chaired by the CEO, is a senior management committee that sets priorities and direction for Health, Safety, Environment and Community Management programs and tracks performance.
Teck has been recognized as a world leader in sustainability and responsible resource development in several indices and through awards for our sustainability and safety performance.
