Upstream Sustainability Services has been Workspace Group’s strategic sustainability adviser since 2001, partnering to develop strategies, policies, targets and KPIs. We have also been engaging employees and property managers to encourage sustainable practices and resource efficiency within Workspace’s managed portfolio.
Workspace Group's achievements are demonstrable. In 2007/8, they achieved a 23% reduction in water usage at their head office Magenta House, equivalent to a cost saving of £510. Energy savings of 11% were also made on the previous year, preventing 18 tonnes of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere and saving around £5,700.
Guided by Upstream, Workspace Group has demonstrated its commitment to being an environmentally and socially responsible landlord. Forty of Workspace's buildings submitted data to the Landlord Energy Statement data collection exercise and thirty buildings undertook environmental audits. Through the employee volunteering scheme 383 hours of Workspace Group time was donated to community initiatives.
