DISNEY'S ANIMALS, SCIENCE, AND ENVIRONMENT

Our commitment to environmental stewardship focuses on using resources wisely and protecting the planet as we operate and grow our business. Scarcity of natural resources and threats to ecosystems and biodiversity are serious environmental issues. These challenges demand fundamental changes in the way society, including the private sector, uses natural resources. We strive to meet our long-term goal of attaining a “zero” state of net greenhouse gas emissions and waste, while conserving water resources when and wherever we can
