The Nature Trust of British Columbia is pleased to be honouring Don Lindsay at our Fall Gala – Celebrating Conservation Leadership.
Taking Action to Conserve Our Natural Heritage
This year marks Teck’s 100th anniversary and, over the course of the last century, our people have helped build communities, create jobs and responsibly develop resources across British Columbia.
Today, our employees still live and work in these communities, and they are dedicated to making sure that the vibrant economy and natural splendour of the places they live will be maintained for future generations. Those values have also shaped our approach to business over the years, and ingrained a deep committment to responsible, sustainable resource development at Teck.
That’s why, when several blocks of private land in the Kootenays were recently offered for sale, we realized we had a unique opportunity to put those shared values into action on a large scale. To ensure that this land is protected, we have announced that Teck will invest $19 million to purchase three blocks totalling approximately 7,150 hectares in the Elk Valley and Flathead River Valley.
