PAWTUCKET, R.I.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), a global play and entertainment company, has been named to 3BL Media’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens 2022 ranking, marking the company’s 11th straight year on the list. 100 Best Corporate Citizens recognizes outstanding environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance and transparency among the 1,000 largest, publicly-traded U.S. companies.
The ranking is based on 155 ESG factors across eight pillars: climate change, employee relations, environment, finance, governance, human rights, stakeholders and society, and ESG performance.
“At Hasbro, purpose and ESG are core to our business strategy, and we are proud of the significant progress we’re making on our goals this year, including joining the Science Based Targets initiative and championing and empowering female workers in our supply chain,” said Kathrin Belliveau, Chief Purpose Officer, Hasbro. “We’re honored to be recognized as one of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens for the positive impact we are having on people and the planet.”

There is no fee for companies to be included in 100 Best Corporate Citizens.
To compile the ranking, corporate data and information is obtained from publicly available sources only, rather than questionnaires or company submissions. Companies have the option to verify data collected for the ranking at no cost.
