BILLUND – March 15, 2018: Today, Reputation Institute released the annual RepTrak®100 survey. The LEGO Group maintains its rank from last year as the second-most highly regarded company in the world when it comes to corporate reputation.

“We are very happy and humbled to maintain such high regard by the public. It reflects the unique LEGO® idea and values, and the dedication our employees show every day to bring LEGO play to children all over the world. It is truly an honour to be embraced by the level of affinity that LEGO fans of all ages show us.”
“Since the LEGO brick was patented 60 years ago, we have been committed to inspiring and developing the builders of tomorrow. Our ambition to reach more children with LEGO experiences is more important than ever, and our purpose is what drives us and keeps us on our toes.
