Report slams Disney for "greenwashing"

Written by Brett Mathews

BEIJING - A new report from the Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs (IPE) claims Disney uses licensing as a way of shirking environmental responsibility. The IPE claims Disney ignored requests for information about pollution violations at a textile dyeing and finishing mill licensed to produce home textiles for Disney. "When faced with environmental violations resulting from licensing, which brings the brand actual or potential profits, Disney emphasises that the facilities with pollution records are suppliers to licensors and not 'engaged directly or indirectly by Disney'," says the IPE report.
