Community Investment Categories
Teck focuses our contributions within four community investment categories. We support programs and initiatives that:
enhance access to health services, improve child and maternal health, and/or reduce the prevalence of disease.
enhance access to educational resources and training opportunities with an emphasis on programs of relevance to the mining, metals and energy industries.
support and enhance the environment with a particular focus on water, biodiversity, and energy.
build capacity and improve livelihoods by supporting business development, agriculture, subsistence activities, employment initiatives, food security and vulnerable groups. We also support projects that enhance community spirit and wellness through community organizations, indigenous organizations and athletic and recreational activities.
In some cases, Teck will contribute to visual and performing arts organizations, libraries, museums and cultural centres that emphasize the role of mining and minerals in society or the promotion of local and indigenous culture.
