A family-owned holding & investment company

KIRKBI A/S is the holding and investment company of the Kirk Kristiansen family. Through KIRKBI’s three business areas - Strategic Activities, Investment Activities and Support – we aspire to enable the Kirk Kristiansen family to succeed with the mission through generations and to create a positive impact through responsible ownership and investments.


KIRKBI’s strategic activities include 75% ownership of the LEGO Group, 29.7% ownership of Merlin Entertainments plc and investments in renewable energy. 


The investment activities include significant long-term investments in companies such as ISS A/S, Nilfisk A/S and Falck A/S as well as real estate investments in Denmark, Switzerland, Germany and the UK. 


Besides these activities, we have support functions which assist the business areas and the Kirk Kristiansen family as well as provide administrative support to the associated foundations, LEGO Foundation and Ole Kirk’s Fond.

As a compass for all of our business activities is the KIRKBI Fundamentals that describe our values, spirit, promises, aspiration and mission. The Fundamentals are based on the LEGO Idea paper - a internal document written by the Kirk Kristiansen family – that describes the foundation for all Kirk Kristiansen enterprises, which are the LEGO Foundation, the LEGO Group, LEGO Education and KIRKBI. Common to all enterprises is the shared mission, promises, spirit and values.


In KIRKBI, corporate responsibility is integrated in our Fundamentals and the three Promises to people, to partners and to the planet. With these promises, we aim to fulfil a strong focus on creating a positive impact through responsible ownership and investments.
