Emphasizing green initiatives has become vital for businesses of all sizes, and rating systems like Green Star are recognizing organizations who maintain sustainable design and operations of their buildings.
Currently, the six-star building design is the highest standard in green construction, but could flexible workspaces raise the bar?
Once a building has accomplished a green, carbon-neutral environment, how can it go forward? The “seventh star” could be given to buildings that are already sustainable, but also offer flexible workspaces that help cut commute times, which reduce overall carbon emissions.
Additionally, offering employees remote working options through flexible workspaces can cut down on the number of cars on the road, as well as boost their overall productivity and satisfaction with their employer.
Moving forward, as environmentalism becomes a more valued part of our day-to-day world, flexible workspaces are offering new ways for companies to promote sustainability.
