TD’s Green Team leaders learning about wind turbines
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.
