TD has been selected as a 2009 Climate Disclosure Leader by the Conference Board of Canada and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). The CDP is an independent not-for-profit organization holding the largest database of corporate climate change information in the world. Based on their review of an annual questionnaire sent to the largest 200 companies on the Toronto Stock Exchange, TD is one of only five low-carbon impact sector companies (out of more than 40 low-carbon impact companies who submitted responses) to be named a Climate Disclosure Leader in 2009.
Climate change is not a problem that can be solved by the actions of companies alone. In her keynote address at the recent launch of the CDP report, TD’s Chief Environment Officer Karen Clarke-Whistler reinforced how environmental issues such as climate change are especially important in a resource-based economy like ours. For Canada, the environment IS an economic issue.
“By measuring, managing, and disclosing our greenhouse gas emissions data, we can move ahead with the most effective response to climate change,” adds Clarke-Whistler.
