Hasbro Named to Maplecroft Climate Innovation Indexes

PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS) was recently ranked No. 137 on the Maplecroft Climate Innovation Indexes (CII) Benchmark, which is part of the Maplecroft Climate Innovation Indexes (CII). According to the organization, the Maplecroft CII is the single most exhaustive study of the 360 largest U.S.-based multinational companies and how they manage and adapt to climate change, with a special focus on innovation.

Examples of the corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives at Hasbro that were evaluated and highlighted as key strengths as part of the Maplecroft CII Benchmark selection process include:

The Maplecroft CII considers U.S. stocks with a free-float market capitalization of more than $1 billion (USD), and each company is rated against more than 100 performance-based criteria. These criteria include: technological innovation and new working practices to combat climate change impacts; management of climate-related issues; adaption to physical climate-related risks, such as flooding or more extreme weather events throughout the supply chain; and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

This recognition builds on the leadership distinctions Hasbro has received from several prestigious organizations in 2012 for its CSR efforts. Hasbro was recently ranked 23rd on Corporate Responsibility Magazine's 100 Best Corporate Citizens list as well as being recognized as one of the "2012 World's Most Ethical Companies" by the Ethisphere Institute. Additionally, Hasbro received an inaugural Climate Leadership Award by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, as a result of its continued efforts to address climate change and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
