The Lego Group aims to invest $1 billion to build a new factory in Chesterfield County, Virginia. 100% of the factory's daily energy needs will be met by an onsite solar park. The site will limit energy use and nonrenewable resources.

Energy-efficient manufacturing techniques and factory structures will be used. Once the building is finished, the goal is to achieve Gold LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) accreditation, and an on-site solar park will be built to meet all of the factory's energy requirements.

Production will likely begin in the second half of 2025 and construction in the fall of 2022.

Lego has recently announced plans to invest up to $400 million over three years to speed up its social responsibility and sustainability projects.

Additionally, it has begun a pilot programme in the US to recycle used bricks by distributing them to charitable organisations around the country, and it has succeeded in achieving its objective of sourcing all of its energy from renewable sources.
