With the completion and operationalization of the 258 megawatt Burbo Bank Extension Offshore Wind Farm, the LEGO group have reached their 100% renewable energy target three years ahead of schedule. And to celebrate the occasion and spread further awareness, the company has built the largest ever LEGO brick wind turbine.

As reported by Clean Technica, since 2012, LEGO has supported the development of more than 160 megawatts of renewable energy. With their latest investment in a 25% stake in the Burbo Bank wind farm, off the coast of Liverpool in the UK, they have reached their set target for renewable energy.

“We work to leave a positive impact on the planet and I am truly excited about the inauguration of the Burbo Bank Extension wind farm,” said Bali Padda, CEO of the LEGO Group.

“This development means we have now reached the 100% renewable energy milestone three years ahead of target. Together with our partners, we intend to continue investing in renewable energy to help create a better future for the builders of tomorrow.”
