Policies and Regulations

The OLC Group has been making consistent efforts to eliminate the wasting of resources by purifying wastewater and promoting the use of reclaimed water on a voluntary basis since opening its first Theme Park to the public.
By introducing the latest cutting-edge systems, we take environmentally friendly measures at all stages of the life cycles of attractions and facilities, from design to introduction, repair and replacement.

The OLC Group’s Environmental Policy (Revised May 2022)

The OLC Group undertakes environmental activities in line with Our Environmental Policy.

Management Structures

The OLC Group’s Structures to Drainage Management System

Our Group has established an Environmental Action Committee chaired by the Supervisor of the Corporate Strategy Planning Division (Executive Director and Executive Officer). The committee is responsible for planning and setting targets for the Company’s environmental activities including climate change. Due to wide-ranging laws governing water supply and drainage*, our Group Water Supply and Drainage Guidelines were established and our Group is developing a system to facilitate the appropriate management of water supply and drainage operations accordingly. Through the Environmental Action Committee, targets and plans regarding environment actions are reported to the Board of Directors annually. Recognizing environmental issues including developing a recycling-oriented society as an important managerial challenge to be addressed, our Board of Directors resolved to set “Measures to address climate change and natural disasters” and “Recycling-oriented society” as our ESG materiality, and monitor the progress made in our related plans. 


*Japan has various laws and regulations, including the Water Quality Pollution Control Act, the Water Supply Act, the Act on Maintenance of Sanitation in Buildings, and the Sewerage Service Act, which apply to our Group companies on the basis of location and business type.

Actions and Performances

Water Purification and Recycling

The water used by our Group is collected, purified and recycled at a water treatment plant owned by our Group, in order to reduce water use.
Today, 24 percent of the water we use (789 thousand m³) is recycled at our Group's water treatment plant and reused for toilet flushing at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.


With regard to the “Effective use of water resources,” a key performance indicator (KPI) under the 2024 Medium-term Plan, we intend to set a new target for the next Medium-term Plan.

Recycling of Water in Water Areas

We have placed filtration devices in areas and attractions containing water at our Theme Parks. These devices enable us to maintain water quality by conducting thorough checks and effectively circulating all water.
For example, the water contained in the vast water areas within Tokyo DisneySea is processed through a large-scale cycle filtration/purification system. Thanks to this system, we can efficiently maintain a consistent level of water by replenishing stocks on sunny days to make up for water lost to evaporation and we can also make adjustments to deal with overflows on rainy days. Clean water used for fountains pours into the bodies of water located throughout Tokyo DisneySea, allowing us to use water effectively without wasting any of it.
