Sustainably successful business
The business district of Liesing has existed for more than 150 years. Since 2011 it has been known as “Standpunkt Liesing” on the initiative of the Vienna Economic Chamber, the Vienna Business Agency and the City of Vienna. The aim is to establish new standards for development of such districts in the area of saving resources. Standpunkt Liesing is one of Austria’s largest single business districts (an area of 240 ha) and home to more than 750 companies from a wide range of sectors. The significant advantages of the location in the southern part of Vienna include the good infrastructural connections (motorway, underground) and the support offered by the District Management. This is located at the heart of the district and already operates as a central networking point for businesses, companies looking for a new location, locals and other interested parties. Countless business people use the opportunity to express their opinion on matters related to the location at networking and other dialog-based events. Taking the individual needs of companies as a starting point, the district seeks the potential for cooperation and synergies. “Our team wants to help these businesses to make a contribution to further increasing the advantages of the location. In doing this, particular attention is paid to operating in ways which save resources” says the District Manager, explaining his central role.
Companies are actively supported by the District Management in this area of saving resources. Special events are held to offer information and advice about measures such as the building of solar facilities, improvements in facilities management, resource-saving approaches in the area of building refurbishment and the creation of buying syndicates. Potential sources of subsidy are also presented.
For all those who also want to take advantage of these services, plots of all sizes and qualities are still available at Standpunkt Liesing. The District Management also offers help in searching for a location.
