Sustainability

We care about our environment and the impact people and industry have on it.

Our Mission is to enable sustainable businesses to thrive by creating innovative ecosystems and we take our responsibility to the planet seriously.

    Our part in caring for our planet

    To create sustainable, environmentally low impact solutions and services, we follow the four Rs of environmental sustainability – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Restore – across all our operations from our eCommerce Hubs and hospitality services, our robotics fulfilment centres and supply chain. 

    We’ve set an ambitious goal of operating carbon neutral by 2023.

    Reduce

    We have set the ambitious target of operating carbon neutral by 2023. We will achieve our goal by switching to renewable energy sources, use high quality carbon offset schemes and reduce our use of products and services that are carbon emissions dense.

    Our hubs also feature energy saving sensor lighting and water wise taps, while our hospitality services reduce single use plastics.

    Reuse

    Each of our Hubs is built within existing building structures and our interior fitouts seek to use environmentally friendly materials throughout. 

    Our Bourke Rd hub carpet tiles by EcoSoft recycled 35,000 bottles recovered from our oceans. 

    All pallets received at Workit are recycled or reused via a pallet-sharing scheme.

    Recycle

    By recycling materials, we don’t use as many resources or and contribute to greenhouse gases to make new materials. 

    We use recycled materials throughout our physical spaces, from the carpet to our chairs and dining tables and recyclable materials in our supply chain.

    • Our acoustic carpet tiles by EcoSoft contain the equivalent of 50 recycled standard 550ml PET bottles per square metre. 
    • We recycle paper, cardboard, batteries, printer cartridges and shipping pallets using local recycling services and lobby for increased Australian recycling facilities so we can recycle more with less of a carbon footprint. 
    • We are the first Australian business to install Earthkynd’s Oklin compost food waste and commercial compostable materials at our Bourke Rd Hub – turning food waste into soil enriching compost in 24 hours. 
    • Our dining tables are made of shipping container doors from our shipping container bar and cafe.  
    • Our SKUtopia fulfilment centre uses recyclable cardboard in packaging.

    Restore

    It’s important to restore our earth through initiatives that offset our impact. We focus on the scientific standards of carbon emissions and offsets to guide and measure our climate action. 

    To operate carbon neutral by 2023, we will use a combination of solar power generation and carbon offset strategies to achieve our goals. 

    We compost food waste and provide this to our Members to take home and at each of our hubs we plant trees and shrubs. From 2021, we will host an annual tree planting event for our Members.
