TD is pleased to be recognized as one of Canada’s “Green 30” – organizations whose employees are most positive about their environmental stewardship. TD employees participated in the Hewitt survey by answering questions about corporate social responsibility
“Our employees are our biggest environmental advocates and we wouldn’t be where we are today without their passion,” says Karen Clarke-Whistler, TD’s Chief Environment Officer.
The Green 30 list appears in the May 3 edition of Maclean’s, as well as in the May 10 issue of Canadian Business.
TD has also been named as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers by the editors of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project. This award recognizes the employers that lead the nation in creating a culture of environmental awareness in their organizations.
Some of TD’s recent environment achievements include:
- the first Canadian major financial institution to achieve carbon neutral status through a variety of energy reduction initiatives (from new lighting to the purchase of hybrid fleet vehicles) as well as green energy and carbon offset purchases.
- a pioneering organization that funds a variety of local community initiatives through its longstanding "TD Friends of the Environment Foundation", which has provided over $50 million to over 18,400 environmental projects across Canada since 1990.
