Lower Austria (A)


The Lower Austrian Provincial Department of Business, Tourism and Technology steers and supports the development of the Lower Austrian economy in accordance with the objectives and strategies set out in the Lower Austrian "Economic Strategy 2015" plan. The Department manages in turn the Lower Austrian Fund for Business and Tourism Development; this fund is meant to ease access to financing opportunities for Lower Austrian companies in order to encourage and/or enable investment. Furthermore it offers a range of different services (apart from financial support) to strengthen the competitiveness of Lower Austrian companies, especially for SMEs.

Our CSR experience
In the year 2010 CSR was anchored as one of the six main topics of interest in the current Lower Austrian “Economic Strategy 2015”. The overall aim of the Lower Austrian CSR activities offered to the companies is to strengthen sustainable ways of doing business inLower Austria. The Department of Business, Tourism and Technology is fostering CSR by offering a funded project called “Success with responsibility” to SMEs since 2009. Within this project companies are supported by external experts to develop an individual CSR strategy and to write their own sustainability report. Furthermore in 2011Lower Austriaintroduced the regional version of the Austrian CSR-award “TRIGOS”, which is awarded annually to the most sustainable Lower Austrian companies in four different categories: market, society, workplace and ecology.

Our CSR priorities
Apart from capacity building within SMEs, the assessment of companies regarding their CSR-performance as a basis for public funding is essential for the Department of Business, Tourism and Technology. Sustainable public procurement is becoming an important issue at the moment. Furthermore, the Lower Austrian Cluster programm with 5 thematic clusters (green buildings, plastics, mechatronics, food, logistics) is also working on sustainability issues (e.g. bio plastics).
