3.5 Process for defining report content. F

Each year we conduct a formal materiality analysis to identify, prioritize and validate the evolving material issues we face. This process involves research, media scans, stakeholder consultations and internal sustainability discussions which lead to the filtering and defining of our material topics. This annual "radar" helps us track stakeholder interests and concerns and identify new issues as they emerge. The findings drive our corporate responsibility strategy and the information we provide in this report. Report contents are aligned to material topics as identified by key stakeholders.

There are many environmental, social and governance issues that demand our attention. But we give more weight to those risks or opportunities that:

  • Directly relate to TD’s core business;
  • Are stated priorities for our stakeholders; and,
  • Are areas that we have an impact on and where we can effect change.

TD's primary stakeholders include customers, employees, shareholder/investors and government regulators. Our secondary stakeholders include community organizations, industry associations, suppliers and non-governmental organizations. Please refer to the engaging stakeholders chart on page 9 of the CR Report for the ways we listen to stakeholders and the frequency of engagement.
