Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) have once again listed the world's most sustainable companies, and TD is the only Canadian bank to be included.
TORONTO, Sept. 25, 2019 /CNW/ - For the sixth consecutive year, TD Bank Group was listed in the DJSI World Index. From a global pool of 175 banks, TD is the only Canadian bank to be included in the short list of 25 banks.
"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."
The DJSI benchmarks the sustainability performance of leading companies based on environmental, social and economic performance. This accomplishment celebrates the contributions of TD's more than 85,000 employees who help make the organization a global leader in corporate sustainability and corporate citizenship.
TD was recognized for its strong performance in the areas of Corporate Governance, Risk Management, Customer Relationship Management, and Talent Attraction and Development.
Rooted in a desire to help provide its customers, communities and colleagues the confidence to thrive in a changing world, TD believes it has the responsibility to reimagine its business practices so that policies and procedures help to make a positive impact on its communities wherever it does business.
To help illustrate its commitment to this idea, TD issued its first standalone Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report and its first report measuring its Corporate Citizenship strategy, The Ready Commitment, in May 2019.
"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."
TD thanks its colleagues, its customers and communities it serves, and congratulates the other companies that are included on the 2019 index.
