Notes: Rankings proceed from top to bottom with companies at the top as more responsible within the industry and those at the bottom as the less responsible. Letter grades go in this order: A (best),B,C,D,F(worst) with plus (+) and minus (-). "n/i" means we don't have enough information to give a letter grade for that category. The color coding is another corporate responsibility indicator, in the order Green (best), Yellow, Orange, Red (worst). Companies in the green zone are sustainable and working towards creating a greener planet (most industries will not have companioes in the green zone as there are no companies that can be considered sustainable in that industry). Companies red zone have poor environmental and social responsibility records and should be avoided if possible. 'Orange' companies are not quite as bad as 'red' and ' yellow' zone are slightly better than orange. Orange and yellow companies have a ways to go before they can be considered green.

Fast facts about the toy and game industry:



  • Many toys are produced in factory operating under sweatshop-like conditions and the products are often dangerous to the health and safety of consumers.
  • Despite protests, the industry continues to source toys from factories with documented labor and human rights violations, many of which employ child labor and regularly abuse International Labor Organization standards of conduct.
  • In addition, hazardous chemicals are present in the industry’s products, and many have been recalled because of lead contamination.
