Lego hits 100 percent renewable energy target...
Danish toy making giant Lego A/S says it has hit its goal of having 100 percent of its energy coming from renewable sources, just four years after it began its investment in the effort.
The project, which included a 6 billion Danish krone ($902 million) investment in two offshore wind farms, hit Lego's target three years ahead of schedule, the company said in a May 17 news release. Lego purchased a 25 percent stake in the Burbo Bank Extension wind farm off the coast of Liverpool, England, in the United Kingdom.
The wind farm officially opened May 1, and will generate clean power for more than 230,000 British households.To mark the occasion, Lego built “the largest ever” Lego brick wind turbine and challenged children around the world to create their own renewable energy solutions.
