The Lego Group will triple its sustainability investments over the next three years, spending $1.4 billion to design carbon-neutral buildings and facilities and boost production of renewable energy at its sites. These plans are part of the brand’s near-term climate target of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 37% by 2032 compared to a 2019 base figure. They also figure into its goal of achieving net-zero GHG emissions by 2050.
“Our immediate priority is to meet our 2032 carbon reduction targets, and we’re making progress across a range of initiatives,” said Niels Christiansen, CEO of The Lego Group in a statement. “This new, long-term goal will ensure that the decisions we make today will reduce our carbon footprint over the coming decades.
