Canadian diversified miner Teck Resources has made a $5-million donation to the BC Park Foundation to enhance and expand the province’s world-class system of parks and protected areas.

The collaboration between the mining company and the parks foundation will help to preserve and expand green spaces in rural and urban areas, protect important natural park lands and give more people the opportunity to enjoy British Columbia’s natural wealth.

Teck states that the partnership aligns with its commitment to becoming a nature positive company and the foundation’s 25x25 initiative, which seeks to inspire people across the province to protect 25 important places by 2025, in support of Canada’s goal of protecting 25% of land and sea in the next three years.

The 25x25 also inspires people to collect 25-million nature observations, enjoy 25 parks or outdoor activities responsibly and safely and spend at least 2.5 hours a week outside getting healthy by nature.

Teck’s goal to become a nature positive company by 2030 means that, by 2030, Teck’s conservation, protection and restoration of land and biodiversity will exceed the disturbance caused by its mining activities from a 2020 baseline. In doing so, Teck will conserve or rehabilitate at least three hectares for every one hectare affected by its mining activities.

“This collaboration with the BC Parks Foundation supports Teck’s work to become a nature positive company by helping protect nature while also enhancing access to green space for people across British Columbia. Tackling the global challenge of nature loss requires all sectors to work together and we are excited to be partnering with the BC Parks Foundation on this important initiative,” said CEO Jonathan Price.
