Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TECK.A and TECK.B) (NYSE: TECK) announced that it has executed a US$4.0 billion sustainability-linked revolving credit facility.
“Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, and we’re always working to make our sustainability performance even stronger,” said Don Lindsay, President and CEO. “This sustainability-linked facility more fully integrates our performance against our sustainability goals with our financing plan.”
Under the SL RCF the price paid by Teck will increase or decrease based on the company’s performance in reducing carbon emissions, improving health and safety, and strengthening gender diversity in its workforce. The new credit facility matures in October 2026, extending the previous facility by two years. The principal amount outstanding as of October 18 was US$198 million as compared to US$502 million as of June 30, 2021, and it is expected to be at zero by end of October 2021.
The SL RCF is aligned with Teck’s long-term sustainability strategy, which sets out goals including reducing carbon intensity by 33% by 2030 and becoming carbon neutral across operations by 2050. Learn more about Teck’s sustainability strategy here.
In addition to converting and extending its US$4 billion revolving credit facility, Teck has also cancelled its US$1 billion side car that was scheduled to mature in June 2022. This side car facility was established during the initial months of COVID 19, and market conditions and commodity prices have improved significantly since that time.
