Our sustainability progress

At the LEGO Group, we’re playing our part in building a sustainable future and creating a better world for children to inherit.

Our sustainability strategy covers the impact areas: children, environment and people.

Scroll down to learn more about our key highlights for the first half year of 2023 and our progress towards our external KPI's for 2023.

All our sustainability reports


We are committed to making a positive impact for children, and therefore we are particularly inspired by SDG 4, ‘Quality Education’ and SDG 12, ‘Responsible Consumption and Production’. This is where we see our contribution making the greatest impact on the lives of children and the planet.

  • Sustainable Development Goal 4

    Inclusive and equitable quality education

    We advocate for the transformative power of play to be adopted in education and early childhood development around the world. The LEGO Foundation has a 25 percent ownership in the LEGO Group, which means that 25 percent of the LEGO Group’s profit is contributing to help children have access to Learning through Play.

  • Sustainable Development Goal 12

    Responsible consumption and production

    We believe we have a responsibility to continue to reduce the environmental impact of our operations. We have an ambition to make our core products from more sustainable materials and remove all single-use plastic from our packaging, and to reduce the carbon footprint of bringing a LEGO® product to market and limit our use of resources.
