Hasbro reaches top spot in CSR listing

Hasbro has hit the top spot on the 2017 100 Best Corporate Citizens list by CR Magazine.

This year’s listing, which ranks the most transparent and responsible companies in the US, marks the first time Hasbro has been ranked number one, and the third consecutive year the firm has reached the top five.

“We are deeply humbled to be ranked number one for our commitment and performance in Corporate Social Responsibility and sustainability,” said Brian Goldner, chairman and CEO, Hasbro, Inc.

“Being a responsible corporate citizen is core to our business strategy, how we operate and who we are as a company. Today, more than ever, consumers, investors and employees around the world expect companies to act responsibly and transparently, and we are committed to continuing to raise the bar for ourselves in this area.”

Hasbro’s efforts in sustainable packaging, renewable energy and climate change backed the company’s positioning in the list, as well as its contribution to human rights, inclusion and community.

Kathrin Belliveau, SVP of global government, regulatory affairs and CSR at Hasbro, added: “By striving to continuously reduce our environmental footprint, positively influence human rights, and responsibly source materials, we’re helping to make the world a better place for children and families.”
