In its annual Corporate Social Responsibility report, Walt Disney Company highlights a number of environmental objectives for 2030.
The report focuses on the company’s environmental and social efforts. It includes its response to Covid-19, and the need to push for greater diversity and sustainable goals.
Disney has been driving to achieve net zero greenhouse emissions since 2009. In 2020, the company obtained its target to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions by 50% compared to levels in 2012.
By 2030, Disney aims to achieve net zero greenhouse emissions for direct operations at its parks. It also aims to have 100% zero carbon electricity by the same date. To achieve these targets, Walt Disney will invest in natural climate solutions and low carbon fuel innovations.
Christine McCarthy, chief financial officer of the Walt Disney Co., commented: “Our commitment to corporate responsibility is fundamental to our culture and aligns with the growing calls for business to take action.
“This year we met our 2020 environmental goals and set ambitious new 2030 goals, accelerated our initiatives addressing racial and social injustice, and we continue to strengthen our ESG transparency,” McCarthy added.
