WeWork’s commitment


WeWork has committed to being powered by 100% renewable electricity by 2025. We will offset the remainder of our carbon footprint to become operationally carbon neutral by that year

In March 2018 WeWork launched a Zero Plastics Program* and have eliminated single-use disposable plastics from daily operations globally.

*Post Covid-19, we will temporarily be introducing some single-use condiments, cups, and cutlery to our pantries to mitigate the spread of the virus further. We will use environmentally friendly options where possible.

In 2020, WeWork set a goal to reduce our energy and water use by 20% by 2025**

** From a 2019 baseline
