Green is in our
We strive to make the environment an integral part of "how we do things at TD" by focusing on the following key areas:
As part of our carbon neutral commitment, We've invested more than $11 million since 2010 in renewable energy credits and in innovative carbon offsets.
Over 50% of our electricity is supplied through the purchase of Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) from energy sources that lower the carbon content of North America’s energy supply grid. Our carbon offset projects support innovative projects that help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions within our North American footprint. At least 50% of these projects are with social partners such as schools and Aboriginal communities.
Since 2006, we have invested over $7 billion in companies with low carbon operations, in the green building sector, and in public infrastructure. In 2014 TD became the first commercial financial institution in Canada to issue a green bond.
TD is also a member of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investing, which commits us to review environmental considerations as part of our investment decision-making process.
