Visitors and employees at Teck’s Vancouver office now have a secret weapon in the fight against germs and illness – copper.
To reduce the spread of germs and help keep employees healthy, Teck has installed copper-infused door handles and counter tops throughout its Vancouver office. Because of copper’s antimicrobial properties, these door handles and counter tops will continuously eliminate 99.9% of all bacteria that comes in contact with them, reducing the spread of germs throughout the Teck office.

As part of our commitment to improving water quality in BC’s Elk Valley region, a number of research projects are underway to prevent nitrate from entering the environment.
One source of nitrates is from explosives that interact with water during the blasting process. When this occurs nitrates can leach out of blastholes and enter the natural environment. To stop this from occurring plastic liners are used to prevent explosive materials from coming into contact with water.

Teck’s Red Dog Operations creates sustainable waste removal process and recycling program
When Johanna Salatas arrived at Teck’s Red Dog Operations, she discovered most of her colleagues were concerned about the limited and outdated options available to dispose of waste: burial in the landfill or incineration. Relying on the landfill wasn’t a sustainable long-term option, and incinerating high volumes of trash contributed to greenhouse gas emissions.
Teck’s research into water quality management has reached a major breakthrough with the successful development of an in-situ method to remove selenium and nitrate from mine-impacted water. The Saturated Rock Fill (SRF) facility built at Teck’s Elkview Operations can treat up to 10 million liters per day using naturally-occurring biological processes.
In Chile, women make up just 8.3% of workers in the mining industry; at 14%, Teck’s workforce in Chile exceeds the industry average. However, knowing the importance of inclusion and diversity, we doubled down on a cultural change with a gender perspective to better support and attract women into our workforce.
Always asking questions? It’s a strength we value at Teck. Don’t ever change.
We recognize that our diversity—the many different and unique things we individually and collectively bring to work each day—contributes to building a stronger workforce and makes Teck a better company. As such, we consciously work to create an environment that respects and values the diversity of the people and communities around us.
