The Hershey Company 2010 Corporate Social Responsibility Scorecard outlines our progress in advancing the priorities we established in our 2009 Corporate Social Responsibility Report. We understand that operating a sustainable, competitive business requires a commitment to improving our economic, environmental, and social performance. This scorecard shows how we performed against the goals published in our 2009 CSR Report as well as against newer targets established to further advance our priorities. Within this scorecard, we use the following to indicate our progress: ●● ●● ●● ● ●●

Achieved. We have met the target within or ahead of the time frame specified. On track. We expect to achieve the target within the time frame specified. Under development. We are working to further define this target. Needs improvement. We have made some progress but either lack sufficient data or have not progressed as we had expected toward achieving this target.

We look forward to continuing to report on our performance, and we welcome your feedback. To give us your comments, please visit http://www.thehersheycompany.com/contact-us.
