Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TCK.A and TCK.B, NYSE: TCK) ("Teck") was recognized as one of the top corporations in Canada for both corporate citizenship and social responsibility in two separate sustainability rankings.

Teck was named one of the Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada 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. The rankings were based on a range of measures including key social and environmental indicators.

"These acknowledgements reflect our commitment to operating in a responsible and sustainable manner," said Don Lindsay, President and CEO, Teck. "Led by the innovation and dedication of our employees, we are committed to creating lasting benefits in the communities where we operate."

The Corporate Knights Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada ranking examines a range of environmental and social indicators including companies' carbon, water, waste and energy use, pension fund quality and tax dollar generation. Corporate Knights methodology for grading corporate citizenship, first launched in 2002, has been recognized by the global initiative Rate the Raters as a leading global practice.

Companies were selected on the basis of their performance across a broad range of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) indicators tracked by Sustainalytics.

Earlier this year Corporate Knights also named Teck to the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations for the second straight year.

Teck's environmental and social performance is guided by a company-wide Sustainability Strategy. The strategy includes short and long-term goals designed to enhance the company's performance in six areas of focus: community, water, biodiversity, energy, materials stewardship and our people. Teck reports annually on its environmental and social performance through the company's Sustainability Report available at Teck.
