CSR OF WALT DISNEY COMPANY
“ CSR is not a cosmetic, it must be rooted in our values, it must make a difference to the way we do our business” WALT DISNEY CO.
The Walt Disney Company is one of the largest and most well-known corporations practicing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) all the way down the line in their business model.

Volunteerism is a major focus for Disney, offering free tickets to a million people in exchange for a day of volunteer service from an organization of their choice. This encouraged over one million people in the United States to commit to service efforts to volunteer in their communities.
The environment continues to be at the forefront of what Disney strives to protect. Their goal is to benefit their guests, employees and businesses, while making the Company a desirable place to work through their consumer social responsibility efforts. CSR ACTIVITIES:
