Chamber Watch

Chamber Watch rejoinder to Disney's non-response re conflict between its climate commitments and participation in US Chamber of Commerce

It is unfortunate and disappointing that Disney does not find it necessary to explain their membership in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which lobbies against nearly all of Disney's corporate social responsibility commitments to the environment and public health. At a time when consumers are looking to businesses to take a stand against anti-environment policies, and given Bob Iger's decision to leave President Trump's business council over the Paris Agreement, it seems that an explanation for its Chamber membership is needed now more than ever.
