Hasbro has committed to reducing its global Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions from owned/operated facilities by 20 percent by 2020, reports Environmental Reader.
The firm will also cut emissions from 2012 levels and will also halve waste to landfill at its facilities from 2012 levels by the end of 2020.
These new goals build upon its 2008 commitment to reduce non-hazardous waste by 15 percent by 2012, which it surpassed with 40 per cent reduction.
Hasbro also set a 10 percent global GHG emissions reduction goal in 2008 and achieved this goal with a 32 per cent GHG reduction.
The company has also committed to reducing energy consumption at owned or operated facilities by 25 percent from 2012 levels and reduce water consumption from owned oroperated facilities by 15 percent from 2012 levels. Hasbro hopes to achieve both of these by 2020.
In addition, Hasbro will continue its sustainable packaging initiatives. These include reducing packaging material, eliminating PVC from packaging, increasing recycled content and sourcing paper responsibly.
