Hasbro Named No. 1 Toy And Children’s Product Company In Climate Counts Scorecard For 2012-2013

Global branded play leader Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), has taken the top spot in the 2012-2013 Climate Counts Climate Scores rankings in the Toys and Children’s Products sector for the fourth consecutive year. Hasbro also received high honors as the most improved company in the rankings, achieving a 21 point year-over-year gain as a result of the Company’s work to improve sustainable packaging and reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the last year.

“We are honored to once again be recognized by Climate Counts for our efforts to lead the way to a sustainable and low-carbon future,” said Brian Goldner, Hasbro President and CEO. “It’s a great testament to our environmental progress and demonstrates our sustainability commitment to consumers.”

The annual Climate Scores rankings recognize companies across 17 sectors for their efforts to stop climate change through initiatives that decrease carbon emissions and improve operational sustainability. The index ranks companies on a scale of zero to 100 for their practices to reduce global warming, based on current carbon footprint and milestones and strategies to reduce environmental impact.

Environmental sustainability, including a focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, is a core element of Hasbro’s industry-leading Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program. Within the last year, Hasbro has met and exceeded its goal to reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 10 percent from a 2008 baseline, and has achieved a 20 percent reduction to date.
