Hasbro Maintains its Position in the Top 5 on Prestigious Business
PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), today announced that it ranked #3 on CR
Magazine's 100 Best Corporate Citizens List for 2016, which
published today and ranks the most transparent and responsible companies
in the United States. This is the second time that Hasbro has ranked in
the Top 5 and the fifth consecutive year it has ranked in the Top 25.
"People and our planet are at the core of our purpose to make the world
a better place for children and their families. This is why we have made
corporate social responsibility a business priority and have long been
committed to doing the right thing for our employees, our consumers and
the communities in which we serve," said Brian Goldner, Hasbro's
Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, who was featured on the
cover of the January/February
issue of CR Magazine. "The Hasbro brand is a trustmark for
parents and caregivers, and we take that responsibility very seriously.
This prestigious recognition reinforces what we at Hasbro know to be
true, that it's not just about what you do that matters - it's also
about how you do it."
The 100 Best Corporate Citizens List is based on an analysis of
the companies in the Russell 1000 Index, across 303 data elements in
seven categories: environment, climate change, employee relations, human
rights, governance, finance, and philanthropy & community support.
This recognition builds on the leadership distinctions Hasbro has
recently received from other distinguished organizations. In April,
Hasbro was named among the most reputable companies in the United
States, according to the annual US
RepTrak® 100 list by Reputation Institute. In March, the company was
featured as a 2016
World's Most Ethical Company® by the Ethisphere
Institute, the global leader in defining and advancing the standards of
ethical business practices. And, in December 2015 the U.S.
EPA recognized Hasbro for leading green power use, a testament to
the company's continued efforts to transition to more renewable energy.
"We are proud to consistently be recognized as a leading business in
corporate social responsibility as it is a testament to our continued
advancements across our key focus areas including product safety,
environmental sustainability, human rights and ethical sourcing," said
Kathrin Belliveau, Senior Vice President, Global Government, Regulatory
Affairs and Corporate Social Responsibility. "Hasbro is deeply committed
to continuous improvement and doing what's right for all of our
stakeholders across the globe."
