PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)–3BL Media has named Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), a global play and entertainment company, to its annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking, recognizing outstanding environmental, social and governance (ESG) transparency and performance among the 1,000 largest, U.S. public companies.
This is the tenth consecutive year Hasbro has been named to the list, ranking 4th this year in the Consumer Durables and Apparel industry.
“Hasbro has a proud legacy as a responsible corporate citizen and we’re honored to be named to the 100 Best Corporate Citizens List for the tenth straight year,” said Kathrin Belliveau, Hasbro’s SVP and Chief Purpose Officer. “We understand that doing well includes doing good in the world and our new Global Purpose Organization was created to further extend our commitment to leading through our values to make a difference in the world.”
The 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking is based on 146 ESG transparency and performance factors in eight pillars: climate change, employee relations, environment, finance, governance, human rights, stakeholders and society, and ESG performance.
Using a methodology developed by 3BL Media, all Russell 1000 Index companies are researched by ISS ESG, the responsible investment research arm of Institutional Shareholder Services. 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. Data and information used in the 2021 edition of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking is from March 13, 2020 to March 19, 2021.
“Achieving the transformational targets in the Paris Agreement and UN Sustainable Development Goals in this decade requires all companies truly embed ESG issues into the core of their business,” said Dave Armon, CEO of 3BL Media. “The best corporate citizens of 2021 are answering the call by demonstrating the societal and bottom-line value of leadership and transparency around ESG topics. They are setting ambitious goals, outlining robust strategies for achieving them, disclosing data to measure progress, and accounting for all stakeholders in business decisions.”
