Hasbro named one of the world’s most ethical companies by Ethisphere

Hasbro has been named as a 2016 World’s Most Ethical Company by the Ethisphere Institute.

The World’s Most Ethical Companies list recognises companies who ‘align principle with action, work tirelessly to make trust part of their corporate DNA, and in doing so, shape future industry standards by introducing best practices’.

Hasbro has been designated as a World’s Most Ethical Company for the past five years.

“Hasbro is honored to be ranked amongst the World’s Most Ethical Companies for the fifth consecutive year," said Brian Goldner, chairman, president and chief executive officer, at Hasbro.

"This is a testament to Hasbro’s strong commitment to corporate social responsibility, governance and ethics, and environmental sustainability.

Ethisphere CEO Timothy Erblich added: “As a five-time honoree, Hasbro’s commitment to leading with integrity is evidenced by its continuing commitment to corporate social responsibility initiatives and a robust risk based compliance and ethics programme.

“Hasbro recognises its role in the global business community and the value this creates for investors, customers and employees. Congratulations to everyone at Hasbro for again being recognized as a 2016 World’s Most Ethical Company.”

The World’s Most Ethical Company assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics Quotient framework, developed over years of research to provide a mean to assess an organisation’s performance in an objective, consistent and standardised way.
