The Walt Disney Company

"The Walt Disney Company has committed to achieve net zero emissions for its direct operations (Scope 1 and 2) by 2030. Net Zero Tracker
This target covers Carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Net Zero Tracker
An interesting fact about their environmental policy is their strategy for meeting this goal, which includes avoiding emissions by building more sustainably to reduce the energy needed to operate their business, reducing emissions through investment in more efficiency technologies and processes, and replacing high-carbon energy sources with lower carbon alternatives. Net Zero Tracker
In addition, you can check out the net-zero commitments and data …"

Sector Benchmark

Note: Latest GHG and revenue data (based on tradingview.com) are used to calculate GHG emissions intensity by sector. The color scale of each bubble depends on the GHG intensity (GHG emissions per 1 million USD revenue). Sectors follow the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) that organize companies based on their primary business activities. The 11 sectors are : Information Technology, Health Care, Financials, Consumer Discretionary, Communication Services, Industrials, Consumer Staples, Energy, Utilities, Real Estate, and Materials.

The Walt Disney Company belongs to the sector Communication Services.
