Businesses globally are signing up to ambitious net zero commitments, and the flex sector is no exception. With demand for sustainable workspace on the rise, many flexible office providers are improving their sustainability strategy to remain competitive. But there is still a lot of work to do.
Over the past 12 months, Instant's sustainability experts have undertaken a series of interviews with flex space operators to better understand current sustainability programmes and initiatives within the UK serviced office market. Disruption, cost, building style, individual goals, responsibility and shared space are cited as the key sustainability challenges for the flexible office sector. But while there is still a lot of work to be done in the sector as the role of the workplace evolves, flex operators have an exciting opportunity to lead the way.
Our research centred around these key topics:
- Individual approach to sustainability
- Sustainable strategy development
- Energy, water and waste management
- Renewable technologies
- Governance practices
- Sustainable design
Through this research, we have obtained an insight into current thinking around sustainability in the serviced office sector, the direction of travel, and what is needed to support the acceleration of sustainability agendas.
