Teck provides minerals and metals that are critical to the low carbon future and that play an important role in the circular economy due to their high durability and recyclability. In producing these minerals and metals, we apply the principles of circularity at a site level, through our value chain, and at a larger scale that brings benefits to the communities and environments where we operate and that reduces our impact.

Circularity andour Sustainability Strategy

Circularity is one of our eight strategic themes along with: health and safety, climate change, our people, water, tailings management, communities and Indigenous Peoples, and biodiversity and reclamation. Our sustainability strategy has long-term strategic priorities and shorter-term sustainability goals.

Strategic Priorities:

  • Be a leader in responsibly providing the metals and minerals needed for the transition to an economy focused on reducing waste and keeping products in use
  • Work towards disposing zero industrial waste by 2040


  • By 2025, establish site-based industrial waste inventories and plans to turn waste into useful and appropriate products. Based on these inventories and plans, set goals for industrial waste reduction.
  • By 2025, develop and implement a responsible producer program and "product passport" that is traceable through the value chain.
  • Be a leader in product stewardship by continuing to implement our Materials Stewardship program and produce secondary metals at our Trail Operations.
