Teck was recognized as one of the top corporations in Canada for both corporate citizenship and social responsibility in two separate sustainability rankings in June 2015.
Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada
Teck was the fourth-ranked company overall and the top-ranked mining company on the Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada ranking by media and investment research company Corporate Knights. The Corporate Knights Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada ranking examines a range of environmental and social indicators including companies’ carbon, water, waste and energy use, pension fund quality and tax dollar generation.

Top 50 Socially Responsible Corporations in Canada
Teck was also named one of the Top 50 Socially Responsible Corporations in Canada by Sustainalytics, a global responsible investment research firm. The Top 50 Socially Responsible Corporations in Canada is a report compiled by Sustainalytics and featured in Maclean’s magazine and L’actualité magazine. Companies were selected on the basis of their performance across key environmental and social indicators within their industries.
“As a proudly Canadian company for over 100 years, Teck and its employees are focused on creating lasting benefits in the communities where we operate,” said Don Lindsay, President and CEO, Teck. “These rankings are the direct result of the hard work of our people, whose dedication to doing the right thing for the environment, communities and future generations is at the heart of everything we do.”
Teck’s environmental and social performance is guided by a company-wide Sustainability Strategy that includes short and long-term goals designed to enhance the company’s sustainability performance. Teck reports annually on its environmental and social performance through the company’s Sustainability Report.
This is the third consecutive year Teck has been named to these two separate sustainability rankings. Earlier this year Corporate Knights also named Teck to the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations for the third straight year.
