Environment

Carbon Neutral by 2035

We believe in protecting the environment where we live and work, so we have a sustainable planet now and in the future. That is why we have made the commitment to be carbon neutral by 2035 in Scope 1 and 2 emissions across our entire global operations.

To meet our goals, we are focused on:

Sourcing renewable and clean energy
We will shift to more zero carbon, renewable electricity by partnering with local utilities and investing in new renewable energy through power purchase agreements and securing renewable energy credits.

Improving energy efficiency
Across our buildings, network, vehicle fleets, production studios, and theme parks, we will continue to develop and implement projects to improve energy efficiency. Combined with purchasing carbon offsets to address emissions that have not yet been mitigated, these efforts will help us further reduce our carbon footprint.

Measuring and reporting on our Scope 1 and 2 emissions
To provide transparency and help drive improvement, we will report data using the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol in alignment with the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) framework. We have partnered with a leading consulting firm to guide us through this and help develop our reporting and estimation approach to make sure we get it right.

Our Impact

Our Carbon Footprint

Our environmental commitment will mean eliminating or offsetting approximately 2.2 million tons of CO2e – equivalent to removing 500,000 passenger cars from the road* - a significant step as we work to help build a better, greener world. The majority of our Scope 1 and 2 emissions comes from the purchased electricity powering our operations around the world, including our facilities, data centers, theme parks, and our network helping to keep people connected. The second largest contribution to our emissions comes from our owned and operated fleet and vehicles. The remainder of our Scope 1 and 2 emissions come from generators used across our businesses for remote and back-up power, fugitive emissions from refrigerants in cooling systems, and a small quantity of purchased steam, cooling, and heating for select facilities. More details can be found in our Carbon Footprint Data Report.
