VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 6, 2013) - Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TCK.A and TCK.B, NYSE: TCK) ("Teck") was recognized today as one of the Best 50 Corporate Citizens and one of the Top 50 Socially Responsible Corporations in Canada by media and investment research company Corporate Knights and Sustainalytics respectively. Teck is the number two ranked Best Corporate Citizen in Canada which ranks companies based on their environmental and social performance.

"Our employees care deeply about ensuring that the communities where we operate are not just great places to work, but also great places to live," said Don Lindsay, President and CEO. "As a company we aim to reflect those values through responsible resource development that creates lasting community benefits."

The Corporate Knights Best 50 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.
