Hasbro had previously reduced its global greenhouse gas emissions by 43 per cent between 2000 to 2007.

Now, as part of its long-term green plans, the toy-maker wants to reduce its global emissions by a further 10 per cent by the end of the 2008 to 2012 period.

Brian Goldner, Hasbro's president and CEO, said: "Hasbro's commitment to sustainability has been, and continues to be a high priority in virtually all facets of our operations, and we are committed to reporting our progress to our employees, our shareholders and consumers around the world who enjoy our brands, products and immersive entertainment experiences."

To help achieve its goals, Hasbro has made changes such as natural gas heating in production areas, introducing window, door and roof insulation and installing energy saving lighting with occupancy sensors.

Hasbro was the first in the toy industry to agree to voluntarily disclose its progress through the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Climate Leaders Program.
