Hasbro is committed to sourcing products, components and materials (hereafter referred to as “products”) from third party vendors that share our values concerning human rights, ethics, and corporate social responsibility.
Hasbro condemns the ongoing violence and humanitarian crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries, financed partly by the trade of minerals referred to as ‘conflict minerals’ (tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold).
These minerals can make their way into the supply chains of various products used by consumers and businesses around the world. As a publicly traded company and downstream user of products that could potentially contain conflict minerals, Hasbro is required to comply with U. S. Securities and Exchange commission (SEC) conflict minerals rule and the Conflict Minerals program is aligned with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas (OECD Guidance).
This policy is intended to reinforce Hasbro’s commitment to responsible sourcing and to inform our third party vendors of Hasbro’s requirement that Hasbro-branded products will be conflict free. Hasbro’s policy does not preclude our third party vendor from sourcing certified conflict-free minerals from the DRC and adjoining countries.
Any interested party can report concerns or possible violations of this policy confidentially through Hasbro’s conflict minerals email address ConflictMinerals@hasbro.com.
Hasbro requires all third party vendors who produce Hasbro products likely to contain conflict minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold) to comply with the following requirements:
Hasbro reserves the right to require additional documentation to verify the conflict minerals used and source of the conflict minerals contained in the products supplied to Hasbro.
