Workspace signs up to CUBE Competition



London’s leading provider of flexible office space has signed up two of its buildings to CUBE’s annual energy saving competition: The Leather Market in Bermondsey and The Frames in Shoreditch.


Set to launch next month, CUBE Competition is the industry’s first competition centred around energy efficiency improvements in the workplace with a growing number of participants already signed up, including Landsec, Howard de Walden, Chubb, Stanhope, and RO Group.


Established in 1987 and listed on the London Stock Exchange since 1993, Workspace is home to London’s brightest businesses and owns 4million square feet of space across 60 locations in the capital.


With a commitment to reach net zero by 2030, the FTSE 250 firm has a clear sustainability strategy in place. Workspace focuses on repurposing heritage buildings and owning them in the long-term, ensuring they are as climate resilient and future proofed as possible. The company also works closely with its customers, creating task groups across several buildings, who collaborate to improve the building’s environmental performance.


Ariane Ephraim, Sustainability Manager at Workspace, said:

“Rallying our customers to get behind our ESG strategy is one of the most important steps towards us achieving our net zero goals. Developing and driving forward initiatives to reduce our environmental impact is an area we’ve already had a lot of success with, and we’re ready to showcase what we can do on a bigger stage as part of the CUBE Competition.”

Kristin Marin, who runs the competition in the UK, added:

“Workspace is one of the industry’s leading providers of flexible workspace and we’re delighted to have them signed up to the competition. Providing flexible workspace to innovators, pioneers, and entrepreneurs, we know that they really pride themselves on community engagement and collaboration so we can’t wait to see what they do as part of the competition!”

CUBE Competition launches in March 2022.
