Together, we can Rebuild the World
At the LEGO Group, we’re playing our part in building a sustainable future and creating a better world for children to inherit. We’re joining forces with children and parents, our employees, partners, experts and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to make a lasting impact and inspire the children of today to become the builders of tomorrow.
We want to be a force for Learning through Play! Everything we do is driven by our desire to put children first. We support and enhance children’s rights and empower them to become lifelong learners through play, because we believe it’s the best way to develop and inspire the builders of tomorrow.
We are working to minimize the environmental impact of our operations, moving to design products and packaging in a more circular way and from more sustainable materials to create a better world for our children to inherit.
We care deeply about the people who make LEGO® play experiences possible. Learn more about our commitment to human rights, worker safety and fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace and supply chain.
We recognize the taxes we pay and the jobs we create are important parts of our contribution to the societies in which we operate. Taxation plays a key role in helping countries finance their policies to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
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.
Quality EducationWe 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% ownership in the LEGO Group, which means that 25% of the LEGO Group’s profit is contributing to helping every child to get the time and chance to play – together we are a force for reaching children with Learning though Play.
Responsible consumption and productionWe believe we have a responsibility to minimize the environmental impact of our operations and have set an ambition to make LEGO bricks from more sustainable materials by 2030 and our packaging more sustainable by 2025.
