Teck recognized for corporate citizenship, social responsibility and makes Canadian top 50 best corporate citizens list.

Teck Resources Limited was recognized today as one of the best 50 corporate citizens and one of the top 50 socially responsible corporations in Canada by media and investment research company Corporate Knights and Sustainalytics, respectively.

Teck is the number two ranked best corporate citizen in Canada which ranks companies based on their environmental and social performance.

The Corporate Knights best 50 examines a range of environmental and social indicators including companies’ carbon, water, waste and energy use, pension fund quality and tax dollar generation.

Teck’s environmental and social performance is part of a company-wide sustainability strategy.

The strategy includes short and long-term goals designed to enhance the company’s performance in six areas of focus: community, water, biodiversity, energy, materials stewardship and people.

Teck was also recognized today as one of the top 50 socially responsible corporations in Canada in a report compiled by Sustainalytics and featured in Maclean’s magazine.

Companies were selected on the basis of their performance across a broad range of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) indicators tracked by Sustainalytics.

Earlier this year Corporate Knights also named Teck to the global 100 most sustainable corporations for 2013. Teck was the top ranked Canadian company on the Global 100 list.
