Doing the right thing

Doing the right thing

Driving forward our Environmental, Social and Governance agenda is a top priority for Workspace. As a long-term owner of historic properties across the city, we play a key role in the employment-led regeneration of areas all over London. We take seriously our responsibility to positively impact local communities, while reducing our impact on the environment.

our doing the right thing framework


We commit to the following science-based targets to help us achieve our net zero carbon goal:

  • Reduce absolute scope 1 GHG emissions 42% by FY2030 from a FY2020 base year
  • Continue annually sourcing 100% renewable electricity through FY2030
  • Reduce scope 3 GHG from capital goods 20% per square foot of net lettable area by FY2030 from a FY2020 base year

Our science-based targets are strengthened by the following objectives:

  • Install solar panels for all new developments and major refurbishments where possible and install solar panels on six shortlisted standing assets
  • Developing our offsetting strategy

We acknowledge there is a climate emergency and that the building and construction industry significantly contributes to the global carbon footprint. This is why we are becoming a net zero carbon business by 2030, driving down our operational and embodied carbon emissions, aligned to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
