By developing a plan of sustainability the Lego Group will be able to recycle those damaged pieces of Legos and use them in the development of new Legos or as mentioned a recycle bin.

The short-term expenditure to get the sustainable product underway would be greeted with long-term benefits including greater innovation, quality improvement, energy savings, and revenue growth. Developing new manufacturing practices and product design synergizes the eco-efficiency efforts that can result in lower production costs and greater operational efficiencies, as well as reduced shipping and transportation costs. A sustainable product should have the five key elements: Social, Governance, Financial, Health and Safety, and Environment.
