VANCOUVER – Teck Resources was recognized twice this week as one of the top corporations in Canada for both corporate citizenship and social responsibility in two separate sustainability rankings.

Teck was the fourth ranked company overall and the top ranked mining company on the Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada ranking by media and investment research company Corporate Knights. Teck was also named one of the Top 50 Socially Responsible Corporations in Canada by Sustainalytics, a global responsible investment research firm.

“As a proudly Canadian company for over 100 years, Teck and its employees are focused on creating lasting benefits in the communities where we operate,” said Teck president and CEO Don Lindsay. “These rankings are the direct result of the hard work of our people, whose dedication to doing the right thing for the environment, communities and future generations is at the heart of everything we do.”

This is the third consecutive year Teck has been named to these two separate sustainability rankings. Earlier this year Corporate Knights also named Teck to the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations for the third straight year.
