"We will continue to build on these milestones and evolve our approach to sustainability as we work towards achieving our long-term goals."

Launched in 2011, Teck's sustainability strategy established short- and long-term goals under the following focus areas: Community, Our People, Water, Biodiversity, Energy, and Materials Stewardship.

2013 sustainability highlights include:

    strengthening health care systems.
