HASBRO NAMED BY U.S. EPA AS A WINNER OF 2014 CLIMATE LEADERSHIP AWARD AND RECEIVES LEED ® GOLD CERTIFICATION FROM U.S. GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL

Global branded play leader Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS) today announced that it has been named as a winner of the Climate Leadership Awards for the second time, honoring the Company’s exemplary corporate, organizational, and individual leadership in reducing carbon pollution and addressing climate change. Hasbro, home to globally popular brands including MY LITTLE PONY, MONOPOLY and PLAY-DOH, was honored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Association of Climate Change Officers, the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, and The Climate Registry, for demonstrating leadership in managing and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

"Hasbro remains firmly committed to driving continuous improvement across all facets of our business, and this recognition is a testament to the dedicated Hasbro teams around the world who continue to raise the bar and work hard to help us achieve our sustainability goals,” said Brian Goldner, Hasbro's President and CEO. "We are honored to be recognized by the EPA for our advancements in environmental sustainability."

Hasbro received the “Excellence in Greenhouse Gas Management – Goal Setting Certificate,” which recognizes organizations that publicly report and verify corporate GHG inventories and set aggressive GHG emissions reduction goals. Announced in September 2013, Hasbro established a goal to reduce GHG emissions by 20 percent by 2020 from a 2012 base year. This is the company's third public GHG reduction goal. Hasbro's first goal achieved a 43 percent reduction in GHG emissions from 2000 to 2007 for U.S. operations, while their second goal reduced global GHG emissions by 32 percent from 2008 to 2012. Hasbro was also awarded a Climate Leadership Award for Excellence in GHG Management (Goal Achievement) for its efforts in 2012.

“Hasbro has made great strides in reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” said Janet McCabe, acting assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation. "Their commitment to reducing carbon pollution demonstrates that efforts to address climate change are repaid by saving money and energy, while supporting more livable and resilient communities, and a healthier, better protected environment."
