Hasbro response to IGLHR report on Dongguan Zhenyang Toy factory
Hasbro is committed to corporate social responsibility and conducting its business in accordance with high ethical and business standards. We know that when consumers choose Hasbro toys and games, it’s an act of trust that our products are manufactured safely, under fair labor conditions, and without ethical compromises. Hasbro combines industry best practices, strategic partnerships, and strict auditing standards to respect the safety, well-being, and dignity of workers, and works continuously to ensure compliance with all third party manufacturing facilities. We utilize the ICTI CARE process as well as our own rigorous ethical sourcing practices to ensure that employees at all third party facilities have a healthy and safe working environment.
We are aware of the Institute for Global Labor and Human Rights (IGLHR) report “Dirty Toys Made in China,” dated December 2015. We take all allegations regarding our ethical sourcing program very seriously and promptly investigated the IGLHR report. We performed an unannounced factory inspection on December 14, 2015 and confirmed that no Hasbro product was being produced in this facility. While Zhenyang Wanju had been a third-party supplier to Hasbro in the past, they have not supplied Hasbro products since 2014.
At Hasbro, we appreciate IGLHR’s and other organizations’ sharing information about toy factory conditions and welcome the opportunity to work together toward the shared goal of ensuring human rights are being upheld throughout our supply chain.
