- Operational Footprint
We’re committed to continuous improvement to lower TD’s operational footprint through:
- Reducing energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across TD’s business operations and fleet;
- Developing green building design standards for our new and existing facilities;
- Reducing paper waste, non-paper waste and e-waste; and
- Greening our supply chain.
Reducing our operational footprint while TD continues to grow through acquisition is a challenge. We are currently developing intensity-based environmental performance metrics that will measure our progress on a per-employee basis. This will provide a tool for managing our performance over time regardless of changes to the size of our business.
See our targets and current performance in the following areas:
We have completed the planning and design components of an Environmental Management System (EMS) based on ISO14001 standards that will allow us to track and report our activities. The full system will be implemented through an environmental management information system by the end of 2011.
