LEGO boosted its energy efficiency by 16 per cent from 2013 to 2016

The firm surpassed its aim of an increase of 10 per cent.

LEGO has bettered its estimated energy efficiency target for 2013 to 2016.

The firm aimed for a 10 per cent increase of energy efficiency from 2013 to 2016 through its commitment to the World Wildlife Foundation’s climate savers programme, but the firm exceeded that target with an accumulated energy efficiency improvement of 16 per cent.

The LEGO Group aims to have all energy consumption balanced by renewable energy by 2020 and during the first half of 2016, the LEGO Group continued setting up the Sustainable Materials Centre.

The centre aims to deliver on the LEGO Group’s ambition of ensuring that all raw materials used for manufacturing LEGO products, including packaging, are sustainable by 2030.

“For the LEGO Group, investing in an ambitious responsibility agenda is an ongoing and integral part of our company - to continue to improve how we run our business in relation to our environmental impact," said executive vice president and chief financial officer, John Goodwin.

"In that process, we focus on a broad range of efforts, with energy efficiency and investments in renewable energy being one cornerstone. Another is our search for sustainable materials, on which we will continue our dedicated work in the coming years."
