The Danish toy company, LEGO, recently celebrated its planting of 50,000 trees at its factory in Binh Duong province, Vietnam.

The factory which has been under construction since November last year has made significant progress. It is the first carbon-neutral plant of the company, using electricity from the rooftop solar cell panels and the nearby solar farm.

“As construction is underway, we are grateful for the continued support from authorities and our partners,” said Preben Elnef, vice president of the LEGO Group.

Currently, there are more than 2,000 construction workers building the plant and the number would double by the end of 2023, according to the Vietnam News.

The LEGO factory in Binh Duong is expected to be ready to operate in the second half of 2024.
