PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 2019--

Corporate Responsibility Magazine (CR Magazine) has named Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS) to its 20 th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking. The list recognizes the standout environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance of the 1,000 largest U.S. public companies.

This is the eighth consecutive year Hasbro has ranked in the top 25, due to its commitments to climate change, environmental sustainability, human rights, diversity and inclusion, and transparency.

“Corporate Social Responsibility is fundamental to how we operate our business,” said Brian Goldner, chairman and CEO, Hasbro, Inc. “We believe that by fulfilling our purpose to make the world a better place for children and their families, we are also doing the right thing for our shareholders and key stakeholders. We’re proud that the Hasbro logo is a trustmark for consumers around the world, and appreciate that our global teams are achieving success the right way: by living our values and building long-term value.”

The 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking documents 98 ESG factors of disclosure and performance measures, harvested from publicly-available information in seven categories: environment, climate change, human rights, stakeholders, employee relations, governance and finance. The list ranks the Russell 1000 Index.

CR Magazine is proud to present a corporate ranking that advances ESG transparency,” said Dave Armon, 3BL Media CEO which publishes CR Magazine. “Since 1999, the 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking has celebrated corporate transparency and performance to drive progress, build trust and promote accountability on ESG issues. We congratulate those honored on this year’s list for their commitment to corporate responsibility and sustainability.”

This achievement builds on the recognition Hasbro has already received this year, having recently been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies ® by Ethisphere Institute for the eighth year, and among America’s Most Reputable Companies by the Reputation Institute, the world’s foremost research and advisory firm focused solely on corporate reputations.
