Our Approach to Sustainability

Our sustainability focus areas represent the most significant challenges and opportunities facing our company in the area of sustainability.

Featured Topics

  • After Mining
    After Mining We begin planning for responsible mine closure before mining even starts, and that work carries on throughout the lifecycle of the operation, in cooperation with Indigenous Peoples and local communities.
  • Inclusion and Diversity
    Inclusion and Diversity Teck is committed to supporting an inclusive and diverse workplace that recognizes and values difference.
  • Climate Action
    Climate Action Climate change is real, it is directly influenced by human activity, and it requires decisive global action to address.
  • Indigenous Peoples
    Indigenous Peoples We are committed to building strong relationships with Indigenous Peoples to help us understand our respective priorities and perspectives and ultimately create lasting, mutual benefits.
  • Economic Contributions
    Economic Contributions We generate significant value in the areas where we operate and work to build trust with our communities by being open and transparent in our business activities.

Business and Sustainability

Corporate Governance

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.
