Teck named Canada’s most sustainable corporation

Teck was recognized as one of the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations for 2013 at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland last week.

Teck was the top ranked Canadian company on the Global 100 list.

“Our people live and work in the communities where we operate and they care deeply about doing the right thing for future generations,” said Don Lindsay, President and CEO. “This ranking recognizes the progress we’ve made, but we know there is more work to be done. Teck remains committed to responsible resource development and to considering people, communities and the environment, now and in the future, in every decision we make.”

Launched in 2005, the ranking of the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations was recently recognized as the world’s most credible corporate sustainability ranking in a GlobeScan/SustainAbility survey. The top 100 companies are selected from all publicly traded companies with a market capitalization over USD$2 billion. Companies were evaluated based on a range of sector-specific sustainability metrics, such as water, energy and carbon productivity, and safety performance.

Teck has also been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI) for the last three years, which ranks Teck’s sustainability practices in the top 10 per cent of companies in the resource sector worldwide.
