Teck Resources Limited

Teck is a diversified resource company committed to responsible mining and mineral development, with business units focused on copper, steelmaking coal and zinc, as well as investments in energy assets. Headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Teck owns or has an interest in 8 operating mines in North and South America, as well as one large metallurgical complex and an oil sands mining and processing operation, both in Canada. Teck has expertise across a wide range of activities related to exploration, development, mining and minerals processing, smelting and refining, safety, environmental protection, materials stewardship, recycling and research.

TSM Results

All of Teck’s operations apply TSM, and all Canadian operations publicly report their TSM results. Teck’s Canadian operations include Highland Valley Copper and Trail operations in British Columbia as well as four steelmaking coal operations in British Columbia: Elkview, Fording River, Greenhills and Line Creek. Teck Cardinal River Operations in Alberta ceased operations in June 2020. The site has transitioned into closure, with ongoing focus on post-closure reclamation.

In 2019, three of Teck’s operations, Greenhills, Cardinal River and Trail, underwent TSM verification. The verification process included either an external verification performed by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). The reviews assessed Teck’s reported performance results for the year ending December 31, 2019, as measured against the requirements of the TSM performance indicators.

Teck’s overall results for 2019 were strong, and the company achieved high levels of performance across many of the TSM protocols. All of Teck’s Canadian operations achieved a Level AAA for all indicators of the Energy Use and GHG Emissions Management, and Aboriginal and Community Outreach protocols. Of note, Greenhills and Cardinal River were assessed against MAC’s new 2019 Tailings Management Protocol.

Teck’s performance in TSM is part of their overall approach to sustainability and responsible resource development. Through their sustainability strategy, Teck has identified the following long-term strategic priorities for its work in sustainability: Climate Change, Water, Tailings, Responsible Production, Biodiversity and Reclamation, Health & Safety, Our People, and Communities & Indigenous Peoples. Within each area, Teck has set short-term and long-term goals and targets to continually enhance sustainability performance and assess progress, which the company reports on in its annual sustainability report.
