The accolade attests to the Vancouver-based miner's sustainability practices being in the top 10% of the S&P Global Broad Market Index's 2,500 largest companies.

Companies included on the DJSI are evaluated for their economic, social and environmental performance.

Teck said it scored the highest in the mining industry in talent attraction and retention, materiality, supply chain management and environmental policy and management systems.

"Our commitment to responsible resource development is core to who we are as a company and is central to everything we do," Teck's CEO Don Lindsay said.

With a market value of about C$17.57 billion (US$13.49 billion), Teck has major business units focused on copper, steelmaking coal, zinc and oil sands.
