This year's report marks Teck's thirteenth year of reporting on its annual sustainability performance.

"At Teck, we know that our commitment to sustainability is fundamental to our long term success as a resource development company," said Don Lindsay, President and CEO, Teck. "Sustainability continues to guide our approach to business as we look for new ways to enhance our competitiveness while minimizing our environmental footprint and creating benefits for communities."

"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:

Community


--  Partnered with UNICEF Canada to improve access to and use of zinc as a

    strengthening health care systems.
