2013 was Landmark Year for Disney Citizenship Performance

The Walt Disney Company is reporting that 2013 was a "landmark" year for citizenship performance.

In 2012, Disney published a series of time-bound, measurable targets to track citizenship performance, and the 2013 Disney Citizenship Summary is the second published disclosure of progress toward those targets.

The report states that Disney strives to prioritize four areas: live healthier, strengthen communities, conserve nature, and think creatively. The company is committed to conducting business in an ethical manner, focused on six areas: ethical conduct, responsible conduct, environmental stewardship, civic engagement, respectful workplaces, and responsible supply chain.

To that end, Disney is reporting that last year the company donated nearly $370 million, awarded its 1000th conservation grant through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent.

Other milestones include the hiring of more than 4,200 veterans since the launch of the Heroes Work Here initiative, and Disney employees have volunteered 667,000 hours in their communities through the Disney VoluntEARS program.
