Recognising the substantial environmental impact of the real estate sector, we have proactively integrated sustainability across our operations as well as hosting our first ever sustainability summit."
"We have implemented various steps including saving water up to 40 percent per tap through low flow aerators, sourcing non-toxic materials for our spaces, using air filters for pollution free workspaces, and implementing zero plastic plan that led to WeWork India being a plastic free environment. WeWork India is the only flexible workspace provider to commit towards being sustainable by setting actionable goals," he added.
