With investors and consumers giving greater scrutiny to the companies they do business with regarding their environmental, social, and economic performance, being a ‘sustainable business’ is a badge of honour.
TD Bank Group has been named among the world’s most sustainable businesses by Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) among just 25 banks on the shortlist and the only Canadian bank.
“This accomplishment is a testament to TD’s commitment to help build a more inclusive and sustainable tomorrow and reflects our purpose: to enrich the lives of our customers, colleagues and communities,” said Andrea Barrack, Global Head, Sustainability and Corporate Citizenship, TD. “Our inclusion on the DJSI World Index is a reaffirmation of TD’s goal to be an environmental leader as well as our long-standing commitment to diversity, human rights, and positive social impact.”
TD was recognized for its strong performance in the areas of Corporate Governance, Risk Management, Customer Relationship Management, and Talent Attraction and Development.
The bank has acknowledged the support and efforts of its 85,000 employees worldwide.
Among its sustainability initiatives, TD recently published its first Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) report and its first report measuring its Corporate Citizenship strategy, The Ready Commitment.
“We launched The Ready Commitment to activate the power of our business, philanthropy and human capital to drive greater impact,” said Barrack. “Our size and scale enable us to be a positive change agent across our footprint, and we are incredibly proud to be recognized for another consecutive year as an environmental leader among the world’s most sustainable companies.”
