The LEGO Group has appointed a chief sustainability officer in the form of Annette Stube, the current executive vice president and head of sustainability at Stora Enso.
Stube will take up the new role with the Danish toymaker from January 1, 2024 when she will report to CEO Niels B Christiansen and take on responsibility for leading the company’s environmental sustainability vision and strategy.
Stube will work with operations, product development, and marketing teams to deliver company-wide plans and targets. She will also support LEGO’s external environmental communications and engagement activity.
“We are excited to have Annette join us to further advance our sustainability ambitions,” said Christiansen. “Delivering on our Planet Promise is one of our most urgent and important challenges. While we have made significant progress over the past few year to reduce the impact our business has on the planet, we have much more to do.“
