Canada’s Teck Resources has been recognised by media and investment research company Corporate Knights as one of the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations for 2014.
This recognition was awarded at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and is the second consecutive year the project has made the list.
Teck Resources is a diversified resource company committed to responsible mining and mineral development with major business units focused on copper, steel-making coal, zinc and energy.
Teck Resources president and CEO Don Lindsay said that the ranking recognises the dedicated work of their employees, whose commitment to responsible resource development has made the company a global leader in sustainability.
"At Teck, we are focused on ensuring people around the world can enjoy a better quality of life because of mining and the products it helps create," Lindsay said.
"We remain committed to continually improving our sustainability performance and this recognition confirms we are moving in the right direction."
Teck has also been named in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI) for the last four years, which reflects the company’s sustainability practices in the top 10% of the world’s 2,500 largest public companies.
In 2013, the mining company was named in the Best 50 Corporate Citizens, by Corporate Knights, and in the Top 50 Socially Responsible Corporations, by Sustainalytics.
The Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations was initiated in 2005 and has been recognised as the world’s most credible corporate sustainability ranking.
