"This recognition is a testament to our employee’s efforts around the world to uphold integrity in our business operations while continuously striving to do better and address challenges as they arise,” said Kathrin Belliveau, Senior Vice President for Global Government Affairs and Corporate Social Responsibility.
Hasbro has been recognized as one of the world’s leading companies for CSR and sustainability efforts, including five consecutive years as one of Ethisphere’s "World’s Most Ethical Companies®“ and five consecutive years at the top of CR Magazine’s ranking of “100 Best Corporate Citizens.“ Hasbro is currently ranked No. 1 on Newsweek Magazine’s Green Rankings.
