LEGO: Investing in a sustainable future & achieving net zero

The LEGO Group is set to invest $1.4b in building a sustainable future while striving to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050

Toy production company, The LEGO Group, has pledged to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. 

By working with the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi), the LEGO Group will improve its sustainability credentials, by reducing its Scope 1, 2 & 3 emissions. Recently, the group announced reducing its emissions by 37% by 2032 from a 2019 base. 

“Our immediate priority is to meet our 2032 carbon reduction targets and we’re making progress across a range of initiatives,” says Niels Christiansen, CEO of the LEGO Group. “This new, long-term goal will ensure that the decisions we make today will reduce our carbon footprint over the coming decades. It will also encourage future generations of LEGO employees, partners and suppliers to continue working with a sense of urgency to reduce the environmental impact of our business.”

Investing in a sustainable future 

Over the next three years, the LEGO Group plans to triple its investments in environmental sustainability, spending more than US$1.4bn in related activities, including: 

  • Designing buildings and sites to be carbon-neutral run with the highest environmental standards.
  • Increasing capacity and production of renewable energy by reducing absolute emissions across manufacturing, stores and offices.
  • Taking CO2 emissions into account across all business decisions. 
  • Partnering with suppliers to reduce environmental impact, for example, by reducing emissions from outside its operations and supply chain.

“We know that children are looking to us to do what’s right,” Christiansen says. “Caring for the environment is one of their top concerns and we receive hundreds of letters a year with great ideas from kids on how we can make a difference. They are holding us to account, and we must set ambitious goals and take meaningful and lasting actions to protect their futures.”
