Realizing environmental goals in a large organization is a collaborative effort that requires total engagement. In this session, audience members will explore how to strengthen key partnerships within their own organizations, manage competing priorities, and reconcile their environmental footprint in the face of rapid organizational growth. By drawing on case studies from the Disneyland Resort, speakers will identify how the benefits of a strategic approach that incorporates these themes helped them cultivate a culture of Environmentality, one where everyone in the organization shares in the critical responsibility of ensuring the Earth can sustain the Magic.
