A commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions at Disneyland Resort

In accordance with The Walt Disney Company’s sustainability goals, Disneyland Resort is committed to eco-friendly initiatives that make a positive difference in supporting the environment and protecting the planet. The Sustainable Food Systems program at Disneyland Resort exemplifies this mission; by growing lower-carbon food offerings, expanding demand for climate-friendly foods and engaging with suppliers, the resort aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from food systems by 30% by 2030.

Disneyland Resort earns fourth SEAL Business Sustainability Award

These commitments to eco-friendly menu offerings and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions recently earned Disneyland Resort its fourth SEAL Business Sustainability Award (honoring Sustainability, Environmental Achievement and Leadership). This environmental initiative award recognizes programs that move the needle on environmental progress, pointing toward an eco-friendlier future.  

The 2024 recognition acknowledges the resort’s innovative Sustainable Food Systems program, which includes the Sustainable Culinary Fellowship — a year-long program designed to immerse chefs across Disneyland Resort in the connection between climate and food. Fellows establish an expertise in low-carbon ingredients, menu development, agricultural & sourcing practices and food waste. These chefs have brought fan-favorite, sustainable offerings to the resort, including the Dinoco Blue Cheese Burger at Flo’s V8 Cafe which features a lower-carbon, angus beef & mushroom patty. Early impact metrics indicate that new climate friendly offerings developed by these culinary fellows result in 20% to 80% less carbon emissions in their life cycle than traditional menu offerings. With the creativity of these culinary visionaries, eating sustainably is both tasty and environmentally tactical — a treat for guests and chefs alike.
