We believe in protecting the environment where our customers and employees 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 for 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 our 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 annually

To provide transparency and help drive improvement, we will report data using the 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.

We realize this public commitment is the first step and we will continue to share our approach and progress as we work towards our goals. 

Reaching carbon neutrality will mean eliminating or offsetting the more than 2 million tons of CO2e in our footprint today, equivalent to nearly 500,000 passenger cars. 1The majority of our emissions stem from the purchased electricity powering our global operations, including our facilities, data centers, and theme parks, as well our network that keeps people connected. These emissions account for the largest portion of our overall GHG footprint. More information can be found in our Carbon Footprint Data Report.
