2013 Landmark Year for Disney Citizenship

By Marni Tomljanovic, Disney Citizenship
At Disney, we believe that our concern for kids and families has to extend beyond their entertainment to the world around them.

Disney prospers because people take us into their hearts and homes. They have an emotional connection to our brand because of their experiences with it, so our actions as a company have to live up to the examples in the stories we tell. That is why we take seriously our obligation to produce responsible content and products, maintain respectful workplaces, invest in communities, and care for our planet.
