Renewables is a strategic investment area for KIRKBI. The primary reason behind the investments is to support KIRKBI’s and the LEGO Group’s commitment towards balancing their global consumption of energy with renewable energy, while at the same time delivering attractive long-term returns on investment.
In addition, this investment area is also a clear evidence of the fact that the Kirk Kristiansen family wants to make a positive impact on the planet for future generations.
KIRKBI targets direct minority investments in solar, onshore wind and offshore wind assets. KIRKBI actively influences from a board perspective, but is not involved in the day-to-day asset operations. The intention is to form long-term partnerships and to be long-term owners of the underlying assets.
The geographic focus is on Northern Europe, North America and Japan.
