At Caterpillar, we share the concerns of governments and the public about the risks of climate change and support global mitigation efforts. That’s why we partner with clients to chart a successful path to a low-carbon future.
While this is a challenging task, it is also an exciting and opportunity-filled time for Caterpillar and our customers. We are especially excited about this collaboration as it is an opportunity to work with clients to help shape the future of mineral deposits with a positive global impact.

Rollout will begin at Elk Valley, British Columbia’s Teka plant in 2027. This should introduce one of Canada’s first fleets of large trucks with zero emissions and Caterpillar undercarriage options.
CREATE A BETTER WORLD
Teck is committed to the responsible development of mining. The company is aware of its role in the transition to a low-carbon economy and has developed a strategy with short-term and long-term targets to reduce emissions with the goal of achieving emissions neutrality by 2050.
Similarly, Caterpillar is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by helping our customers achieve their environmental goals. We recently announced seven new sustainable development goals to be achieved by 2030.
There is no doubt that we have a great task ahead of us. This agreement between Teck and Caterpillar is another step in their partnership to create a better world. At Caterpillar, we will continue to work with customers across the company to develop solutions that enable customers to successfully achieve their business and environmental goals.
