Teck Named to Dow Jones Sustainability World Index

18:07 EDT Thursday, September 12, 2013

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 12, 2013) - Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TCK.A and TCK.B, NYSE: TCK) ("Teck") has been named to the 2013 Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI) for the fourth straight year, indicating that Teck's sustainability practices rank in the top 10 per cent of the world's 2,500 largest public companies.

"We're pleased to be appointed to the DJSI for the fourth straight year," said Don Lindsay, President and CEO, "This achievement reflects the work of employees across our company who are committed to continually improving our sustainability performance."

Teck's DJSI ranking again placed it amongst the leaders in the mining category as Teck continued to advance its sustainability strategy by taking measurable steps towards achieving its goals in six focus areas: Community, Our People, Water, Biodiversity, Energy, and Materials Stewardship.

Teck first achieved a DJSI North America ranking in 2009, which reflected a position in the top 20 per cent in the mining industry in North America, and was first named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index in 2010.

Dow Jones contracts RobecoSAM, an investment specialist focused on sustainability investing, to compile the DJSI. The DJSI tracks the performance of global sustainability leaders, through an annual assessment of the world's 2,500 largest public companies. Among other factors, it measures management practices surrounding economic, environmental and social criteria. For more information on the DJSI, go to http://www.sustainability-indexes.com/

Earlier this year Teck was named one of the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations for 2013 by Corporate Knights. Teck was the top ranked Canadian company and the top mining company worldwide on the Global 100 list. In addition, Teck was recognized as one of the Top 50 Socially Responsible Corporations in Canada in a report compiled by Sustainalytics in 2013.
