We are committed to strong corporate governance. The Board of Directors has a Corporate Governance Committee that works with our General Counsel to ensure that our governance practices are up to date and that they meet applicable standards. Sound governance structures and systems protect the interests of investors and other COIs, and ensure that the company is well managed. The Audit, Corporate Governance and Nominating, and Compensation Committees are composed entirely of independent directors.
We are members of numerous industry associations and are involved in organizations that provide a platform for advancing sustainability. As we implement our sustainability strategy, our involvement with these organizations provides us with guidance and opportunities to share best practices and contribute to industry standards, enabling us to evolve with the best sustainability practices in our industry.
Teck is working to promote best practices in our industry and to help improve the lives of people around the world through initiatives such as our Zinc & Health and Copper & Health programs. We are also helping to support progress on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
