In preparing our Corporate Responsibility Report, TD follows the Sustainability Reporting Guidelines (known as the G3 framework) of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). These are the most widely used international guidelines for measuring and reporting social, environmental and economic performance over time.
There are three GRI application levels of A, B and C, which indicate the level to which a reporting company has applied the G3 framework.
|Report Application Level||G3 Profile Disclosures||G3 Management Approach Disclosures||G3 Performance Indicators & Sector Supplement Performance Indicators|
2.1 – 2.10
3.1 – 3.8, 3.10 – 3.12
4.1 – 4.4, 4.14 – 4.15
|Not Required||Report on a minimum of 10 Performance Indicators, including at least one from each of: Economic, Social and Environmental|
|C+||Report Externally Assured|

TD self-declares its corporate disclosure process to GRI Application Level C. The GRI table has been externally assured by the Canadian Business for Social Responsibility, which allows us to submit the report at a C+ level (GRI checked).
