The latest research by IWG shows that both business leaders and employees are equally united in their concern for protecting the well-being of the planet — even at a time of almost unprecedented increases in the cost of living and conducting business. 

Climate change is a global problem, but the solution lies in the changes we can all make locally, which collectively add up to a more sustainable future for all. This means less commuting, sharing and utilizing resources better, making greener choices on the suppliers we choose and taking care of our communities. With 70 percent of workers stating their concern for the impact commuting has on the environment, the time for change is now.

“Why should companies go to the expense of providing prestige office accommodation in city centers, when there is a better way of working where their people can stay productive, they can save on overhead costs and also work in a greener way?” says IWG CEO and founder Mark Dixon.

Hybrid work is a win-win for businesses, individuals, and communities by reducing the dependency on city centers and removing the need to commute long distances. By moving to a hybrid working model, businesses could reduce their carbon footprint by up to 70 percent. As a provider, IWG also offers carbon-neutral workspaces as well as many additional programs focused on recycling, utilizing more sustainable energy and eco-friendly cleaning.

The latest community to benefit from the presence of a local flexible workspace is Clearfield, a small city located in the northern part of Utah. Future job growth is predicted to be 37.6 percent over the next 5 years, 4.1 percent higher than the US average. Conveniently positioned between two Interstate-15 exits and a 43-mile drive south to Salt Lake City makes commuting and staying connected easy.
