We purchased renewable energy credits (RECs) and carbon offsets to neutralize our GHG emissions. By the end of 2016, TD had invested more than $14 million in projects that create RECs and carbon offsets, contributing to the low-carbon economy.

×

Since 2010, we have invested close to $6 million in renewable energy projects that created 2.7 million MWh of RECs and lowered the carbon content of North America‚Äôs energy supply grid.


Our carbon offsets support innovative projects that help reduce GHG emissions within our North American footprint. At least 50% of these are projects with social partners such as schools and Indigenous communities. Since 2010, we have invested over $8 million in such projects, offsetting 884,000 tonnes of CO2e.
