Teck has withdrawn its application for the Frontier tar sands mine!
In February 2020, Teck Resources, Canada’s largest mining company, scrapped its application for the Frontier tar sands mine. This move acknowledges that global markets are moving away from investing in expensive, high-carbon projects that are incompatible with climate action. Digging for fossil fuels doesn’t make economic sense in a country like Canada, where opportunities for wind, solar, geothermal and energy efficiency abound.
Public support of the Reject Teck campaign made a big impact!
After Indigenous Climate Action launched the Reject Teck campaign from the UN climate talks in Madrid, groups from all over Canada organized to help more than 140,000 Canadians speak out – together, we sent a clear message that carbon-intensive projects like the Frontier mine are inconsistent with Canada’s climate priorities. Thank you to everyone who took action and used their voice to ensure a climate safe future.
Canada needs a climate test that makes sure projects can only be approved if they are aligned with Canada’s climate goals, and if they will make economic sense in a world that limits global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
