The Walt Disney Company Publishes 2014 Corporate Citizenship Summary

The Walt Disney Company has set corporate citizenship goals for the company that, according to Chief Financial Officer Jay Rasulo, have a direct impact on the company's financial strength and Disney's reputation as "one of the most trusted and admired companies in the world."

The goals for the company's corporate citizenship are based on two frameworks. The first is that Disney should conduct their business and create their products in an ethical manner. And the second is that Disney should work to promote the happiness and well-being of kids and families.

To that end, the company recently released the 2014 Corporate Citizenship Summary and some of the highlights included: connecting 13 million kids and families with nature experiences; decreasing net emissions by 31 percent from 2012 levels; being named the 'Best Corporate Citizen' by the Reputation Institute; and donating 18 million books.

Last year the Disney Conservation Fund also passed $25 million in giving.

I always love reading about the efforts Disney makes to give back and to make the resorts more sustainable. I think that the goals are fantastic, though sometimes it takes them a little longer than I would like to reach them.
