TD Bank Sponsors 300 Acres

TD Bank Group Supports Biodiversity Across Canada as the Launch Sponsor of New Acre Project

“Nature is one of the most powerful tools we have to help communities become more resilient to the impacts of climate change. By using what already exists in nature we can help preserve the health of the environment, while also generating positive social and economic benefits.”

As the launch sponsor for the New Acre Project the TD Bank Group charts an innovative approach to supporting naturalization, ecosystem, and biodiversity projects across Canada.

“Nature is one of the most powerful tools we have to help communities become more resilient to the impacts of climate change,” says Nicole Vadori, TD’s Head of Environment. “By using what already exists in nature we can help preserve the health of the environment, while also generating positive social and economic benefits. We’re proud to be the first sponsor of this initiative, as part of our corporate citizenship platform, The Ready Commitment.”

With a two-year commitment of $220,000 through their corporate citizenship platform, The Ready Commitment, TD’s contribution will add 300 acres of naturalization projects in eight ALUS communities across Canada: ALUS Lac Ste. Anne and ALUS Red Deer County in Alberta; ALUS Saskatchewan Assiniboine Project in Saskatchewan; ALUS Little Saskatchewan River in Manitoba; ALUS Elgin, ALUS Middlesex and ALUS Peterborough in Ontario, and ALUS Montérégie in Quebec.

In this way, TD’s New Acre Project sponsorship will help ALUS Canada’s network of farmers and ranchers enhance wetlands, improve riparian buffer zones and expand wildlife habitats to produce cleaner air, cleaner water and more biodiversity in increasingly resilient Canadian communities.

“We thank TD for their leadership in becoming the New Acre Project’s first corporate sponsors,” said ALUS Canada’s CEO, Bryan Gilvesy. “Their investment is a clear recognition of the important environmental benefits ALUS Canada’s farmers and ranchers produce for Canadians.”

“TD’s support will encourage purpose-driven corporations to invest in nature-based solutions that produce cleaner air, cleaner water, biodiversity and climate action,” Gilvesy added.

The New Acre Project is an environmental, social and governance (ESG) solution that enables businesses to make a positive impact on the natural environment in a way that speaks to all Canadians.
