Teck Named to 2017 Dow Jones Sustainability World Index

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 8, 2017) - For the eighth straight year, Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TECK.A and TECK.B, NYSE: TECK) ("Teck") has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI), indicating that Teck's sustainability practices are in the top 10 percent of the 2,500 largest companies in the S&P Global Broad Market Index (BMI).

"Socially- and environmentally-responsible resource development is an essential part of who we are as a company," said Don Lindsay, President and CEO, Teck. "This ranking reflects the continued hard work our people do every day to provide the metal and mineral products the world needs in a way that maximizes community benefits and minimizes environmental impacts."

Teck was named to both the World Index and North American Index based on an in-depth analysis of economic, social and environmental performance. Teck received the highest possible score in areas including biodiversity and social reporting, and scored the highest in the industry in talent attraction and retention, and mineral waste management.

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/.
