November 3, 2009 – Disney Announces Investment in Forest Conservation Projects


“That’s why as part of our company commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to protect diverse habitats we’re making a major investment in projects to protect forests…”

On November 3, 2009, The Walt Disney Company announced a $7 million investment in various forest conservation efforts worldwide, including the Amazon, the Congo, the Lower Mississippi River valley, and Northern California; $4 million of this will go to work with Conservation International for restoration projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as the Alto Mayo conservation project in Peru. Disney, already working on cutting down their fossil fuel use and their carbon footprint, made these donations to help partners Conservation International, The Nature Conservancy, and The Conservation Fund.
