Lego keeps going green!

Hellego! We discovered over a month ago that Lego, to help the environment had reduced their box size. Now, they are building a new factory near the current factory in Nyiregyháza, Hungary with still the same focus of helping the environment.

The new factory will be designed and constructed with a high focus on integrating sustainability. The new one will replace the one already in Nyiregyháza, Hungary. It will be fully operational by 2015 and will be 120,000m2. That is about three times bigger than the current one in Hungary. The new factory will focus on employee safety, energy efficient production equipment and technologies and investments to increase recycling of waste and water. Lego says that it is their global ambition to make this factory one of the safest workplaces in 2015.

Here are some facts on the new factory that will be built
  • The Factory area will be more than 122,000m2, about three times the size of the current factory
  • There are going to be 768 molding machines and more will be added
  • The Factory design is comparable to the level of a Gold Leed standard
  • About 7000 tones of CO2 will be saved every year with this factory
  • About 60,000m3 of water will be saved annually
