    Our commitment to telling great stories around the world includes filming in locations that reflect a vast array of people and cultures, which is why we review the impact of our productions and assess human rights and environmental risks in all the places where we produce our stories.

  • Our Products & Supply Chains

    Our consumer products bring Disney’s stories, characters, and franchises to life through toys, apparel, books, and a wide variety of merchandise. Additionally, we purchase a vast array of products, materials, and services from thousands of suppliers to support our businesses and operations.

Our Management of Chemicals in Consumer Products statement provides further insight into our focus on the presence and safety of chemicals in consumer products.
