Our work with Disney reflects the Company’s leadership in reducing its carbon emissions and slowing deforestation for the benefit of wildlife, communities and future generations.


Our organizations have collaborated on many initiatives over the years, beginning in the 1990s to help shape the conservation programs at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park and continuing today with key inputs into the Company’s comprehensive long-term environmental strategy. As part of Disney’s commitment to address emissions and combat climate change, the Company has invested over US$10 million in CI’s forest conservation REDD+ projects in the Alto Mayo region of Peru and in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This effort is the largest commitment to CI by a single corporation to such projects to date.



Our plan

The collaboration demonstrates that forest conservation is one of the best and easiest ways to protect the planet and its inhabitants. CI recently announced​ the verification of its forest carbon offset project located in Peru’s Alto Mayo Protected Forest (AMPF). With seed money provided by Disney in 2009, it has become an excellent example of a public-private collaboration around a REDD+ project. As part of Disney’s efforts to address its carbon footprint, CI “retired” over 400,000 metric tons of carbon credits in their name. The project includes a series of workshops for youth from the Alto Mayo’s buffer zone aimed at providing the skills and information that will empower them to educate their communities on the importance of protecting their natural home.

Edit Text: In addition to its work to conserve nature, Disney is helping kids develop lifelong conservation values. The Company brings the magic of the natural world to families through entertaining storytelling such as Disneynature films, experiences in places like Disney’s Animal Kingdom — which reflects the Company’s dedication to wildlife — and engaging programs that inspire conservation action. The Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund has also supported several CI conservation projects around the world, including the protection of the habitat of the hairy-nosed otter in Cambodia.

EditText: In 2012, Disney donated $US 50,000 to CI’s freshwater conservation programs as part of a campaign linked to Disney’s mobile game "Where's My Water?" Tied to the launch of the free version of the game, players helped Swampy the Alligator get enough water to take a bath and collected rubber ducks in the game to show their support for water conservation. The Every Duck Counts campaign also featured freshwater facts, water saving action items and information on CI’s freshwater projects.
