Teck Resources Limited commits to carbon neutrality by 2050

Canadian mining company Teck Resources Limited has committed to reaching carbon neutrality across all operations and activities by 2050.

The mining giant says it supports the global shift towards a low carbon economy, as well as international obligations to tackle climate change.

It notes the pledge also aligns with commitments by Canada and Chile to be carbon neutral by 2050 - most of the company's operations take place in these nations.

The firm aims to reach the target by finding alternative ways of moving materials at its mines, using cleaner power sources and implementing efficiency improvements.

Don Lindsay, President and CEO, said: "Setting the objective to be carbon neutral by 2050 is an important step forward in our commitment to reducing emissions and taking action on climate change.

"Climate change is a global challenge that our company and our industry need to contribute to solving. We will pursue the technologies and measures necessary to reduce carbon emissions across our business, while continuing to responsibly provide the metals and minerals necessary for the world’s transition to a low-carbon economy."
