July 15, 2016 /3BL Media/ - Today, TD Bank Group is among a group of Canadian companies to join the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC). "As the first North American-based carbon neutral bank, TD is committed to supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy," says Karen Clarke-Whistler, Chief Environment Officer, TD Bank Group. "This is not only key to reducing carbon emissions, but it also makes sound economic sense," says Clarke-Whistler. 

The Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition was initiated by the World Bank at the 2014 United Nations Climate Change Summit in New York City, officially launching in 2015 at COP21 in Paris. CPLC is a voluntary initiative that supports and encourages the implementation of carbon pricing around the world.
