LEGO commits to reducing its absolute carbon emissions by 37% by 2032

The LEGO Group has committed to reducing its absolute carbon emissions by 37% by 2032.

The target has been approved by the Science Based Target initiative as consistent with levels required to keep global warming to below 1.5°C, the most ambitious goal of the Paris Agreement.

The company’s target covers emissions from its own operations which equates to 10% of total emissions and includes energy use in its factories, offices and stores, and from its supply chain, which equates to 90% of emissions including areas such as raw materials and distribution.

“Climate change poses one of the biggest risks to society and the planet that our children will inherit,” said Tim Brooks, VP, Environmental Responsibility at LEGO.

“We are committed to building a better planet for future generations and that means stepping up efforts to reduce carbon emissions across our entire value chain.”

To achieve this target, the LEGO Group will:

· Continue to invest in sustainable materials research to reduce the carbon footprint of LEGO products and packaging and making our business more circular

· Continue to work with suppliers through the LEGO Group ‘Engage-to-Reduce’ programme which was set up in 2014 to guide and support them to reduce their own impact

· Increase energy efficiency throughout its operations, expand renewable energy production at factories and ensure procurement of 100% renewable energy across factories, offices and stores

· Increase investment in renewable energy capacity in all regions where the business operates, with the aim of running carbon neutral operations by the end of 2022

· Design offices and factories to the highest environmental standards
