Back of my TD Bank receipt today at the ATM. FSC Certified paper is green paper. They are becoming greener than any other bank. That’s what’s up. www.tdbank.com
As I have written before about FSC verified paper about Staples.
For example, like Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper products, Green Seal™ certified cleaners. Staples used them too for they are part of their Easy on the Planet site. It has more information about our assortment. As well as tools and tips for customers shopping for environmental products.
Yet TD Bank
In 2010, they became the first North American bank to achieve carbon-neutral status. Since, then they have continued to meet our commitment to carbon neutrality
How they meet our carbon neutral commitment:
Reduce energy use. They do this by improving the energy efficiency of our operations. That’s from the way we design and operate our buildings to green IT and employee engagement initiatives.
Generate renewable electricity from their facilities and purchase certified EcoLogo or Green-e renewable energy credits (RECs). All to add the equivalent amount of electricity we use back into the grid.
Offset remaining GHG emissions with innovative North American-based carbon offsets. That’s with a significant portion generated through impact investing projects undertaken with social partners. I mean such as schools, institutions, and Aboriginal communities.
As TD continues to grow, our environmental challenge is to reduce our environmental impact despite rapid business expansion. Our key areas of focus in managing the environmental footprint of our business operations are:
- Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions;
- Improving energy efficiency;
- Reducing paper use;
- Reducing waste volumes and water use;
- Greening our supply chain
More information on our approach to reducing our footprint, can be found in our Corporate Responsibility Reportand in the ESG Appendix: Performance Data.
