The Walt Disney Co. creates positive Humankind Value on the whole. This outcome is largely driven by Economic Value ($20.4 B), Video ($7.0 B), and Medical Services ($2.7 B). It creates economic value by offering to consumers goods and services that they value, paying employees for their labor in producing these goods and services, and providing value for shareholders. Companies providing free or discounted video services that users find valuable accrue positive value beyond the associated profits. Out of every company we have analyzed, The Walt Disney Co. is in the top ten for Video. Downsides for this company are associated with Data Harvesting (-$5.8 B) and Greenhouse Gases (-$810.3 M). Economic Value, Video, and Data Harvesting are attached to this company as a result of its direct business activities. Medical Services and Greenhouse Gases are largely consequences of the actions of supply chain partners.

As far as we can tell, we're the first ones doing it this way.
