In advance of the COP27 meeting in Egypt, the LEGO Group’s CEO has joined leaders in calling for action to enable a net-zero future.
CEO of the LEGO Group, Niels B. Christiansen, has joined more than 100 CEOs in the Alliance of CEO Climate Leaders in calling for action to accelerate government policies on climate action. The 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP27, is taking place in Egypt from November 6 to 18.
The Alliance of CEO Climate Leaders is a group of business leaders calling for governments to accelerate momentum towards a net-zero future by setting bold commitments and following through, driving down the green premium of low-carbon technologies for hard-to-abate sectors, investing in mitigation, adaption and a just transition and internationally harmonising reporting and disclosure standards.
In short, this alliance hopes to convince those attending the COP27 meeting to listen to their pleas and a full open letter has been shared.
The LEGO Group’s recent efforts towards sustainability include breaking the ground on a new carbon-neutral factory in Vietnam, as well as the upcoming paper bags replacing the plastic variety currently in sets.
