We are committed to influencing strong ethical, social and environmental performance across our supply chain and diligently screen our suppliers for sustainable practices. In addition to striving for a responsible supplier network, we also seek to build a diverse one, with suppliers who share our values and demonstrate responsible practices while delivering high-quality goods and services.
CPO Statement on Supplier Diversity
For TD, diversity and inclusion have been a strategic priority for over a decade. Today, we recognize diversity and inclusion as both a core value and a business imperative.
We have designed our North American Supplier Diversity Program to help promote a level playing field and encourage the inclusion of women, Black, Indigenous and other minorities, the LGBTQ2+ community, people with disabilities, veterans and other diverse suppliers in our procurement selection process. We are a member of various diverse supplier organizations in North America that certify a supplier's diversity credentials.
As a major purchaser, TD is committed to using our influence to drive economic inclusion across our supply chains. TD's Strategic Sourcing Group works to ensure that we have a diverse network of suppliers who deliver high-quality and appropriate goods and services. We aim to buy products and services from suppliers who share our values and demonstrate commitment to social and economic inclusion.
Our commitment to supplier diversity reflects TD's focus on contributing to more inclusive economic outcomes across the communities we serve.
