LEGO has set energy goals for the corporate world by running all it’s production facilities on renewable energy resources.
Take note, Corporate America.
A small step towards a “big difference”
LEGO has surely carried out a positive change in corporate systems through the initiative. A few years back, the professionals on the board of LEGO took up the responsibility of using renewable energy as their main production source. They planned to reach the goal by 2022.

The step’s really worth of million applause. Moreover, they reached the target as early as three years, which in itself is something to look up for.
LEGO’s CEO Padda explained in a statement, “We see kids as our role models and as we take action in reducing our impact on environment as a company, we will also strive to work to stand children for sustainable development around the world by engaging them in environmental and social issues,” LEGO’s CEO Padda said.
Pace of change driven by consumers vs change driven by politics:
The LEGO group is running entirely on renewable energy now after meeting targets three years ahead of schedule. https://t.co/0tImku0BH4

LEGO is not a greenhorn in the toy’s production. The veteran company is 86-year-old as well the largest toy manufacturer of America. The company, in their timeline, has influenced cultures across generations. Annually, LEGO brings around $2 billion through-sales in the U.S. alone. Moreover, it has around 42 offices worldwide.
Pre-credits of their achievement
The credit of their beckoning success goes to the 258-megawatt wind farm in the Irish Sea, located offshore. You’d be amazed to know the entire turbine is fabricated from LEGO plastic pieces- 1,46,000 plastic pieces, to be precise.
The company has further released LEGO Wind Turbine Playset. The turbine functions completely well and can be driven by anyone, who’s willing to get in action.
In the world where fossil fuels are at the brink of running out completely, the Irish Sea has become the main powerhouse of energy for US dwellers.
The farm produces approximately 659-megawatt energy to power, probably enough to light up 590,000 residential homes.
