Eco-Efficiency WHY IT’S MATERIAL TO TD


Eco-efficiency means doing more with less. It’s about finding ways to grow our business while reducing our environmental impact. Our long-term commitment to eco-efficiency is also providing insights into the emerging “circular economy,” which is focused on producing zero waste through increased materials and resource efficiency and recycling.


Management Approach


We focus on those aspects of our business operations where we have the biggest opportunity to reduce our environmental footprint:


• Maintaining our carbon neutrality by reducing our energy use, greening our energy supply and offsetting the remaining carbon that we emit


• Ensuring that we manage and use our resources in a sustainable manner • Reducing our operational footprint by building green


TD has developed multi-year metrics and targets to track and help us improve on our performance. Eco-efficiency programs and reporting are managed through a collaborative approach with key internal business partners: Enterprise Real Estate, Strategic Sourcing and Enterprise Technology Solutions. We collect and review data at least annually within our Environmental Management System.

Decoupling our business growth from our GHG emissions We have decoupled our business growth from our direct greenhouse gas emissions by increasing our energy efficiency and greening our energy supply. Here are highlights from 2015:


Remain carbon neutral • Energy reduction: Once fully implemented our 2015 energy reduction initiatives will be saving over 10 million kWh of energy and 14,000 tonnes of CO2


e.


• Greening our energy supply: We achieved a significant milestone – we use 100% green power by purchasing renewable energy credits. Our RECs are certified to EcoLogo™ or Green-e® energy standards and represent additions of new green energy projects to the North American electricity grid.


• Innovative carbon offset projects: We spent over $700,000 on projects located in North America to offset over 87,000 tonnes of CO2


is $7.4 million representing a reduction of 813,855 tonnes of CO2


e. Our total direct investment in carbon offsets e.


In 2015, TD’s purchases of RECs and offsets generated a natural capital value of over $34 million.


Increased resource efficiency • Energy reduction: We decreased energy use by 3% from 2014 and have improved energy intensity on a square-foot basis by 19% since 2008. Despite 26% growth in our occupied space, TD’s total GHG emissions from energy have decreased by 20% since 2008.


• Water reduction: We have decreased water use by 11% from 2011.


• Waste reduction: In 2015, we diverted 100% of e-waste from landfills; 46% was refurbished and 54% recycled.

TD sponsored the Climate Summit of the Americas, held in Toronto in July 2015. Leading up to COP21, the event brought together government leaders and more than 350 people from over 300 jurisdictions in support of the first-ever Pan-American action statement on climate change.


• Paper management: We reduced our total paper usage by 16.4% against a 2010 baseline, falling short of our 20% reduction target. Missing our target was a result of increased commercial print usage in the U.S., as part of our effort to raise our brand profile there since we have grown significantly in the U.S. over the past five years. Roughly 85% of the paper we used was certified as coming from sustainably managed forests. We also increased the portion of post-consumer content over the previous year and supported the Forest Stewardship Council in developing a new standard to address free, prior and informed consent of Aboriginal Peoples. For more information, see the TD Forests Map and our Paper Schedule.
