We are always looking for ways to reduce the environmental impact of our more than 50 owned and leased properties around the world. Our efforts focus primarily on energy consumption, GHG emissions, waste, and water use.
Greening Our Facilities
Given the scope and scale of our operations, we take a comprehensive and strategic approach to managing our environmental impacts. At properties that we own or lease, we enhance environmental performance through the following steps:
- Identify and manage environmental risks
- Comply with all applicable laws and regulations
- Audit for performance against regulatory and company requirements
- Use energy, water, and materials more efficiently
- Minimize water discharges, greenhouse gas, and other air emissions, and waste disposal
- Increase recycling and reuse waste to minimize landfill disposal
- Establish environmental goals, key performance indicators, and minimum standards for all offices, manufacturing facilities, and distribution centers
- Institute environmentally responsible purchasing practices
- Provide employee education and awareness programs
Hasbro has a robust series of policies and standards that set minimum criteria for all operations, and each site is responsible for putting them into practice. Our standards address areas such as Energy and Natural Resource Conservation, Solid Waste, Hazardous Waste Management, Storm Water and Wastewater Management, and Air Pollution Control. Our policies address areas such as Vendor Waste Disposal and Real Estate Acquisition and Divestiture.
Our facility in Providence, Rhode Island is LEED® Gold certified. The facility features a host of green building design improvements that reduce energy consumption, improve air quality, and employ sustainably sourced materials. For example, the building’s air handling units have reduced power consumption by an average of 70 percent compared to the previous system configuration.
Our Green Teams around the world employ Hasbro’s passion and creativity to engage colleagues.For example, the Rhode Island site Green Teams encouraged their colleagues to make a pledge for the environment as part of their annual Earth Month campaign.
