Protecting and enhancing the environment

Protecting and enhancing the environment is our commitment at TD. In addition to continually reducing the environmental impacts of our own business, we also support green projects in the community – through corporate giving, employee volunteering and our flagship program, the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF).

Our objectives in this area are to:

  • Promote environmental education and community engagement
  • Green our urban environment and enhance biodiversity
  • Promote energy conservation

Key Programs We Support

  • TD Friends of the Environment Foundation
    Founded by TD Bank Group in 1990, TD FEF is a national charity that funds environmental projects across Canada. With the support of more than 150,000 donors, TD FEF has provided approximately $76 million to over 24,000 environmental projects and programs.

  • TD Tree Days
    TD Tree Days, TD’s flagship volunteer program, provides TD Employees and their families, our customers and community partners the opportunity to demonstrate leadership in environmental stewardship in their local communities. Since the program launched in 2010, over 235,000 trees have been planted in communities across Canada, the US, the UK, and Luxembourg.

  • TD Green Streets
    As title sponsor of TD Green Streets, TD helps support innovation in municipal forestry across our footprint. Through this program, a dozen of municipalities, Aboriginal communities and Business Improvement Associations across Canada can apply for grants of up to $25,000 each year to support local urban forestry projects. In the US, TD Green Streets supports innovative urban forestry projects in low-moderate-income neighbourhoods with grants of up to $20,000 each. And in the UK, community groups in Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire are invited to apply for one of two £10,000 grants to help make their neighbourhoods greener
