Teck is a diversified resource company committed to responsible mining and mineral development with business units focused on steelmaking coal, copper, zinc and energy, headquartered in Vancouver, Canada.
Teck’s approach to business has been guided by its pursuit of sustainability throughout its more than 100-year history, and responsible mining and mineral development has been fundamental to its long-term success.
Teck has recently updated its sustainability strategy to set new goals in eight strategic themes. This includes setting a goal to become a carbon-neutral operator by 2050. Teck is currently amongst the lowest-carbon intensity producers for steelmaking coal in the world, positioning it well for the transition to a low-carbon economy.
Marcia Smith, Senior Vice President, Sustainability & External Affairs, Teck, said: “Steel is an essential building block for society and Teck is committed to responsible production of steelmaking coal and zinc, which are both important inputs to the steelmaking process. Joining Responsible Steel is part of our focus on collaborating with our customers and mining peers to further improve environmental and social performance across the industry.”
“Having significant representation from all parts of the steel supply chain is extremely important to ResponsibleSteel which is why we are so delighted to welcome Teck as a Business Member.” said Ali Lucas, Executive Director, ResponsibleSteel. “Teck joins us at a critical stage in our development, we as an organisation have many projects underway, and having input from Canada’s largest diversified mining company will really strengthen our work programmes.”back to news
