TORONTO, March 3 /CNW/ - TD Bank Financial Group today released its sixth
annual Corporate Responsibility Report, "Making a Difference Together."
Available at www.td.com/crr, the report offers information about TD's
community, social, environmental, and economic impacts and performance.
Annually, TD shares its commitment to employees and communities through
corporate donations and sponsorships that support a host of national and
regional activities focusing on children's health, the environment, and
literacy and education. In 2007, TD contributed $32.6 million to charities and
not-for-profit organizations across the country, and invested $68.2 million in
employee training and development for its nearly 49,000 Canadian employees.
In 2007, TD also released its Environmental Management Framework building
upon its environmental policy and outlining its approach to tackling critical
issues such as climate change and forest biodiversity. The TD Friends of the
Environment Foundation continued its 18-year history of protecting the
environment providing more than $3 million in funding to 830 grassroots
environment and wildlife initiatives.
