LEGO breaks ground on carbon-newutral factory. The LEGO Group has begun construction on its new factory in Virginia, USA, which is expected to cost $1 billion.
The factory will become the company’s seventh globally.
The factory will operate on solar energy and be carbon-neutral. It will employ over 1,700 workers and use the latest energy-efficient equipment to minimize energy consumption.
Additionally, the LEGO Group plans to donate more than $1 million to support local organisations that provide children from disadvantaged backgrounds with learning through play experiences.
The new factory, which will be the LEGO Group’s second facility in the Americas, is expected to open in 2025. And it will cover an area of 340 acres, equivalent to 260 American football fields.
