LEG Immobilien SE makes an important contribution to providing people with good housing at fair prices. In line with our self-image as a responsible employer and reliable business partner, we observe ESG criteria. The basis for this is our economic success and a high level of customer satisfaction, to which we are all committed on a daily basis. With cooperation partners and at our tenant festivals, we ensure good neighborly relations in our neighborhoods, and with our foundations "LEG NRW Mieter-Stiftung" and "Stiftung - Dein Zuhause hilft" we support tenants in difficult situations.
A central driver for achieving our climate goals is our comprehensive modernisation programme, with which we are upgrading the energy efficiency of our portfolio and making it future-proof. In doing so, we are relying on faster and more efficient serial modernisation processes. Because we need them - also as an industry - to make the building stock in Germany climate-neutral by 2045. We are working on this with numerous skilled partners. Among others, we are looking for solutions to achieve climate neutrality in the climate policy alliance "Initiative Wohnen.2050 e.V." . The financial impact of climate protection should be shared between society, landlords and tenants.
Serial energy-efficient refurbishment is becoming increasingly important. LEG and the Austrian construction company RHOMBERG have dedicated themselves to this purpose and founded the joint venture RENOWATE. The company's goal is to become the solution provider for efficient energy renovation of residential buildings for the entire industry in the region. Serial refurbishment makes sense in terms of climate, social and labour policy as well as from an entrepreneurial point of view. CO2 emissions are reduced, tenants save more on heating costs.
The deployment of skilled labour, which is urgently needed everywhere, is reduced. In addition, the time required and the disruption to residents and neighbours during the construction phase are significantly reduced compared to conventional modernisation measures. This is a win-win situation for everyone involved: tenants, landlords, residents and the entire housing industry.
