Teck Named to Dow Jones Sustainability World Index

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 12, 2014) - Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TCK.A and TCK.B, NYSE: TCK) ("Teck") has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI) for the fifth straight year, indicating that Teck's sustainability practices rank in the top 10 per cent of the 2,500 largest companies in the S&P Global Broad Market Index (BMI).

"This ranking is a direct result of the hard work of our employees and their dedication to doing the right thing for communities and the environment," said Don Lindsay, President and CEO. "Our ongoing focus on sustainability will continue to drive us to innovate and find solutions that contribute to both our business and our sustainability performance."

Teck was named to the World Index based on an in-depth analysis of economic, social and environmental performance. Teck received the highest possible score in a number of assessment areas including biodiversity, enabling local development and approach to managing water-related risks.

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.
