Raiffeisenlandesbank Burgenland believes it has a responsibility to promote sustainability in the region and to support sustainability projects of the Raiffeisen Banking Group Burgenland. The "Raiffeisen Sustainability Initiative Burgenland" (RNI-Bgld) was set up for regional implementation with the participation of all Raiffeisen banks, Raiffeisen warehouses and regional cooperation partners. It offers a platform for promoting innovative projects for an ecologically liveable future. It is aimed at private households as well as companies and municipalities in Burgenland. The platform serves to provide information on sustainable topics, in particular to support the expansion of renewable energy in Burgenland and the transition to sustainable forms of energy. To this end, RNI-Bgld coordinates, advises and supports the conception, implementation and communication of sustainability measures/projects and initiatives.

RLB Burgenland is also optimizing the energy efficiency of its bank branches in order to save costs and reduce greenhouse gases at the individual bank branches.


The energy cooperatives

In 2022, RNI-Bgld initiated the establishment of 18 regional Burgenland energy cooperatives and a citizens' energy cooperative in order to enable the trading of sustainably produced electricity at fair prices among members in accordance with the Renewable Energy Expansion Act (EAG). Together, clean energy can be produced, stored, consumed, sold and traded. Municipalities, clubs, associations, companies and private households can easily join the energy cooperatives.
