Global Citizenship

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).

Zinc & Health

Zinc & Health

As one of the world’s largest producers of zinc, Teck is committed to helping solve the global health issue of zinc deficiency through therapeutic zinc, zinc supplementation, food fortification, crop nutrition, awareness and advocacy. To date, we have reached more than 160 million people worldwide.

Copper & Health

As a major copper producer, we believe we can play an important role in increasing the use of antimicrobial copper in hospitals to reduce the spread of healthcare-acquired infections. Through our new Copper & Health program, Teck is building partnerships, raising awareness and improving health outcomes for patients, visitors and healthcare workers
