TORONTO, Feb. 9, 2022 /CNW/ - TD Bank Group is proud to be recognized with a "S&P Global Silver Class" distinction in the 2022 S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook, one of the most comprehensive annual publications on the state of corporate responsibility.

TD competed against a record number of 7,554 companies, including 475 banks, measured against an extensive set of criteria that includes climate strategy, financial inclusion, talent attraction and retention, codes of business conduct, corporate governance, and sustainable finance.
"Working toward a more sustainable and inclusive future is a core part of our culture, and we are proud to earn an "S&P Global Silver Class" distinction in the Sustainability Yearbook this year in recognition of our efforts," said Janice Farrell Jones, SVP, Sustainability and Corporate Citizenship, TD Bank Group. "We know that ESG needs to be incorporated into everything we do if we're going to bring our goals to life and deliver on the commitments we've made in a meaningful way.
