Disney Invests in Protecting Forests Around the World

By Cynthia Momdjian, The Walt Disney Company
Walt Disney once said, “The land itself—should be as dear to us all as our political heritage and our treasured way of life. Its preservation and the wise conservation of its renewable resources concerns every man, woman and child whose possession it is.” Disney’s environmental legacy is as long as the Company’s timeline. We believe our actions as a company must meet the standard set by the stories we tell. Disney has filled this role through the responsible actions it has taken as a company, including efforts to use resources wisely and conserve nature as the Company operates and grows. Forests have always played a healing role in nature. They provide us with fresh air, filter toxins out of water sources and prevent erosion. They are also home to millions of animals, critters and communities.
