Disney Spends $7 Million to Conserve Forests in Peru, Congo, USA
"Protecting forests is one of our most powerful tools in the fight against climate change."
- Mark Tercek, Nature Conservancy CEO
The Walt Disney Company, which for 60 years has portrayed the glories of nature in film, today announced a $7 million investment to protect forests in the United States, in the Peruvian Amazon and in the Congo Basin.
Disney's forest preservation investment is part of the company's plan, announced last March, to meet three to five year goals to reduce emissions, waste, electricity and water use, and to limit its impact on ecosystems.
