The net-zero energy TD Bank store is also Platinum LEED-certified, which is the highest rating available for buildings built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. TD Bank has opened more than 100 stores and offices targeting LEED certification for their green design, and all 41 of TD Bank's stores relocated and opened in 2012 are energy-efficient and LEED-designed. LEED evaluates buildings for their overall environmental performance in five areas: sustainable sites, water use, energy efficiency, materials and resource use, and indoor environmental quality.
In the last year, TD Bank achieved a number of accomplishments around its environmental initiatives in real estate. In December, TD Bank was awarded the International Council of Shopping Centers Gold U.S. Design and Development Award for the development of the net-zero energy bank in Ft. Lauderdale. Last fall, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency presented TD Bank with a 2012 Green Power Partner Leadership Award for the bank's extensive purchase of renewable energy credits and carbon offsets.
