Creating a Happy Space
LX Hausys launched our ‘Create a Happy Space’ initiative in order to encourage future leaders to dream and hope for a better future by improving public youth spaces through our specialized products and our extensive execution and design capabilities. We improved twenty-five shared spaces of social welfare organizations for adolescents, ranging from the opening of the first building under the “Creating a Happy Space” initiative, which is a child welfare town at the Holt Ilsan Center, to the Jangnak Branch School in 2020. In particular, employees and their children produced DIY furniture, such as lockers, and donated them to the beneficiary facility.

LX Hausys supports the renovation of local children’s centers together with the KACCC (Korea Association of Children’s Center Councils). In 2020, we helped renovate eleven local children’s centers including the Dasom Community Children’s Center

Creating Value for Local Communities through Private-Public Partnerships
Engagement in the Green Remodeling Project
The Green Remodeling Project, supervised by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport, aims to improve the energy performance of old buildings whose energy efficiency has deteriorated. This not only helps to balance energy supply/demand, but also serves to reduce energy costs. We develop and supply high-insulation windows and other energy-efficient products in order to promote the cause of this meaningful project. We are primarily committed to the green remodeling market, renovating 6,800 old sets of windows in 2017, 7,200 in 2018, 7,500 in 2019, and 7,200 in 2020.
Assisting the underprivileged in conjunction with the Ministry of Environment
LX Hausys offers free assistance with renovating homes for socially underprivileged groups including low-income families, broken families, children suffering from environmental diseases, and people whose living conditions are often sub-par. We inspect their homes for hazardous factors that cause environmental diseases and, when necessary, install our eco-friendly wallcovering and flooring free of charge. We visited underprivileged people to measure the indoor air quality of their homes, and chose households in urgent need of renovation and installed eco-friendly wallcovering and flooring and improved their indoor environment. For underprivileged people belonging to socially underprivileged groups suffering from atopic illnesses and other environmental diseases, we provide free medical treatment in cooperation with the Environment & Health Center. In partnership with the government, we have been a pioneer in improving the indoor environments of underprivileged social groups.
Diagnosing Indoor Environments/Supporting Improvement Projects (Creating Places with Clean Air)
The air quality at local children’s centers, facilities for the elderly, rehabilitation facilities for the disabled, and shelters for the homeless, which were selected as targets for our project of “creating places with clean air” was measured, and some centers were found to have actually exceeded the standard stipulated in the Indoor Air Quality Control Act, and mold was visible to the naked eye. Accordingly, we provided eco-friendly interior materials that have been awarded the Eco Label certification, such as 'SORIZAM flooring material' and 'wallcovering FIANCEE', to eleven regional children’s centers in Gyeonggi-do, in order to improve the indoor environment of those centers. The users of facilities for vulnerable social groups benefitted from a more pleasant and comfortable environment thanks to our environmental improvement projects aimed at 'creating places with clean air'.
Indoor Environment Improvement Projects for Green Daycare Centers
Our project to improve the indoor environment of Green Daycare Centers aims to create a healthier indoor environment for future generations through environmentally-friendly consumption. Supported by the Ministry of the Environment, this project aims to cultivate environ mentally-friendly consumers and promote the supply and adoption of green products. LX Hausys contributes to raising awareness of eco friendly building materials and to creating a green consumption culture by donating our flooring materials which have been environmentally certified.
LX Z:IN Safe Door Campaign
Under 'LX Z:IN Safe Door Campaign', we replace old doors of daycare centers with highly safe 'LX Z:IN Doors' so as to prevent safety accidents, such as children’s fingers getting jammed or caught in a door. In particular, as our 'LX Z:IN Door' is equipped with hinges that prevent jamming incidents, and a safe door knob that can turn 180 degrees in order to prevent the door from being completely closed, it can be used without any anxiety regarding children being involved in accidents in houses and daycare centers. In 2020, LX Hausys replaced the doors of three daycare centers including Anayul Disabled Children’s House, Simmok Disabled Children’s House in Yangcheon-gu, Seoul, and the Green Daycare Center in Nowon-gu
