Hasbro is taking another step toward reaching its overall sustainability goals.
The company has joined the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), committing to further reduce its environmental footprint in support of a lower-carbon economy. The move comes as the company continues its sustainability journey, which includes converting its entire product line to plastic-free packaging by the end of this year.
“As a global leader in play and entertainment for fans of all ages, Hasbro understands the critical importance of operating sustainably to protect our planet for future generations,” says Chris Cocks, incoming CEO of Hasbro. “Committing to SBTs is another step for Hasbro to make a positive difference for our planet and fans around the world. Our hope is others across the industry join us in this effort.”
The SBTi is a global initiative that seeks to reduce the impacts of greenhouse gases on human society and nature. Hasbro says that it will set both near-term (2030) and long-term (2050) Science-Based Targets (SBTs) this year that will be validated by the SBTi.
