    TD’s Green Team leaders learning about wind turbines

    Canada’s Greenest Employers logo

    TD named one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for the second year in a row by Mediacorp Canada Inc.

    Our employees are our strongest environmental advocates. TD was named one of The Green 30 by Maclean’s magazine, and the survey results showed that:

    • 80% of TD employees said TD “...helped me gain a good understanding of efforts to become more socially and environmentally responsible,” compared with 74% of employees within the other companies.
    • 81% agreed with “This organization effectively communicates the actions we are taking to minimize our impact on the environment,” compared to just 67% of the other companies.

    Green Teams : We have approximately 60 Green Team leaders across our corporate operations in Canada. TD Environment provides ongoing support through training sessions, networking events and monthly conference calls.

    Environment Intranet Website : In 2010, we expanded our environment site to our U.S. employees. Now, all employees based in North America have green tips and information at their fingertips.

    Transit Passes : Over 3,000 TD employees in Toronto and Vancouver use discounted public transit passes, which help to alleviate the cost of employees’ daily commute and encourage greener transit options.

    Earth Day : Employees embraced Earth Week activities with lots of green passion, including no-car days, no-paper days, no-bottled-water days and samples of 100-mile food. Our branches were visited by conservation groups with birds of prey and other animals to raise awareness of projects supported by the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation .

    What We’re Working On

    In 2011, a new environmental e-learning program will be offered to all employees. We will continue to expand the Green Team network through TD Canada Trust and our stores in the U.S.
