Lego Releases Sustainability Report, Misses Efficiency Target
-Energy consumption amounted to 119 GWh in 2007 against 124 GWh in 2006, corresponding to a decrease of four percent.
-Efficiency in production was 4.40 MWh/ton raw materials against 3.90 MWh/ton in 2006.
-The efficiency for administration was 0.23 MWh/m2 in 2007 against an efficiency of 0.23 MWh/m2 in 2006.
The Group says that extensive redeployments of materials and employees make it difficult for it to follow up on and calculate realistic targets.
For production, changes due to outsourcing are expected. Because of this, the target for 2008 has been set at maximum energy consumption per ton raw materials of 5.00 MWh – an increase over 2007.
For administration, the target for 2008 is set at 0.22 MWh per m2 office space.
Last year, Lego was named the world’s most respected company according to the Reputation Institute’s annual report.
