Nice to see that Disney is focused on this. Climate Counts gave them a 25 out of 100 in their last round of scoring, which equates to 3rd place out of the 6 media companies rated. If Mickey follows through, this should give them a boost.

Disney theme parks should aim for 100% renewable electricity generation following what many ski resorts have been doing in the last several years.

On a separate note, they acquired Ideal Bite last year so clearly they’re believers in the green consumer/media market.
