The OLC Group is striving to reduce the use of disposable plastic in line with Our Environmental Policy.
With respect to items and restaurants, we will continue stepping up our measures to reduce the use of plastic by adopting renewable resources, among others. We are also continuing with our efforts to recycle waste plastic through rigorous sorting.
Our Group has been taking actions to reduce waste, and has set the following targets in order to contribute to “Recycling-oriented society,” our ESG materiality. We will also continue to work on saving resources by reducing the amount of waste, rigorously enforcing the proper separation of different types of waste, and promoting recycling.
The OLC Group undertakes environmental activities in line with Our Environmental Policy.
Our Group has established an Environmental Action Committee chaired by the Supervisor of the Corporate Strategy Planning Division (Executive Director and Executive Vice President Officer). The committee is responsible for planning and setting targets for the Company’s environmental activities including climate change. Established under the Environmental Action Committee, the Subcommittee on Resource Recycling shares our waste management policy across our Group and strengthens collaboration. We strive to implement initiatives to reduce environmental impact by conducting fact-finding surveys, and devise strategies for reducing waste generated by our Group including single use plastics.
We replaced plastic straws provided at restaurants at our Theme Parks and Disney hotels* with paper straws in March 2019. Furthermore, we also began using paper cups instead of plastic cups to serve beer at our Theme Parks in September 2019, as well as installing straw less cup lids at some restaurants in our Theme Parks in June 2021.
In addition, we started charging for the plastic shopping bags for merchandise purchases at locations within Tokyo Disney Resort, including Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, from October 2020.We also started selling original reusable shopping bags.
In April 2022, we replaced plastic wrapping cushioning materials to paper materials at all shops in Tokyo Disney Resort.
