Karen Clarke-Whistler

Chief Environment Officer, TD Bank Group

Karen’s mission is to embed the environment into TD’s core business strategy. TD was the first North American based-bank to be carbon neutral by radically reducing energy usage, procuring 50 per cent of its electricity from renewable sources and developing locally-based carbon offsets. Learnings from this program were leveraged to develop innovative green financing products and to enhance employee engagement. Jantzi Sustainalytics has rated TD as the top environmental performer in the North American banking sector for the past two years.
