Teck is committed to supporting an inclusive and diverse workplace that recognizes and values difference.
We recognize that our diversity—the many different and unique things we individually and collectively bring to work each day—contributes to building a stronger workforce and makes Teck a better company. As such, we consciously work to create an environment that respects and values the diversity of the people and communities around us.
Our focus on inclusion and diversity aligns with our company’s core values of integrity and respect. It is also explicitly reflected in our Charter of Corporate Responsibility, our Code of Ethics; our Code of Sustainable Conduct.

Measures introduced to date include launching a company-wide Inclusion and Diversity Policy, diversity-focused recruitment practices, and programs and training that support the advancement and development of under-represented groups.
While we have made some progress in increasing diversity in our company, we recognize there is more to be done and are focused on continuing to implement initiatives and support industry programs aimed at building diversity in mining.
