How Proworking Spaces Are Leading the Way in Sustainability

As more workers return to the office, it’s important to prioritise sustainability in our workspaces and business practices. In 2023, many businesses are becoming more environmentally and socially responsible, and younger workers in particular are seeking clarity on their company’s actions towards achieving net zero. To meet these expectations, companies are seeking eco-friendly office spaces that promote the wellbeing of both employees and the planet.

Traditional offices no longer meet these needs, and socially conscious businesses are turning to proworking for sustainable office solutions. Proworking is a highly curated form of the now-popular coworking. Proworking is a curation of members, space, and knowledge, and this curation of one’s workspace allows for greater control over the alignment of one’s business practices with sustainability goals.


Energy Efficiency

Most modern coworking spaces are designed to be energy efficient, utilising natural light and energy-saving light bulbs, as well as appliances that meet energy efficiency standards. Coworking providers like Work Club implement sustainable office solutions during the construction phase, optimising natural light and reducing the reliance on artificial lighting, thus reducing carbon footprint.


Waste Reduction

Coworking spaces, and by nature proworking spaces, are inherently sharing-oriented in composition. At their core, they support the sharing of space, supplies and many other resources, thereby cutting down on basic wastefulness. Compared to a traditional office, a coworking office space offers common utilities to all workers present. Not only is this cost-effective, but it also sends less waste to the landfills & results in less electricity consumption.

The Club Lounges at Work Club spaces not only offer members complimentary tea, coffee and fresh fruit, they also encourage members to make use of reusable cups and cutlery as opposed to single use plastics. Members are able to pick up their morning coffee from either the Club Lounge or at our concept retail store & cafe, Sagas, in a ceramic mug as opposed to one that will inevitably end up in landfill.



A great deal of thought and consideration goes into deciding on the location of a Work Club space. Our proworking spaces are all located in centralised areas, which reduces the need for long commutes and encourages alternative transportation options such as walking, cycling, or public transport. We also offer bike storage facilities across all locations for members who wish to make their commute by cycling.


Community Involvement

Coworking spaces often foster a sense of community among their members, and this can extend to sustainability initiatives. Many coworking spaces organise eco-friendly events and encourage members to share their sustainability tips and ideas. This feeling of community that is inherently present in a coworking space can also lead to a greater sense of responsibility and accountability among members, promoting sustainable practices both inside and outside of the workspace.


The Proworking Difference

At Work Club, we take our sustainability values seriously. Our proworking spaces are carefully designed to foster a sense of community amongst our members and encourage eco-friendly events, along with the sharing of sustainability tips and ideas. We also aim to reduce our environmental impact by implementing sustainable practices in our workspaces. The prime example of this is our 200 George location. With its cutting-edge technology, the tower itself sets new global benchmarks for environmentally conscious design, and the proworking space within has been designed with sustainability at its heart. 200 George is located in one of Australia’s most environmentally advanced and sustainable buildings, representing World Leadership in environmental sustainability practices. This proworking space is ideally positioned between Circular Quay and Wynyard: two of Sydney’s best-served transport hubs, meaning that rail, bus, ferry, bicycle and pedestrian links are all in easy reach, making sustainable commuting effortless.
