Working for a greener future
Sustainability is the core of everything we build at Upflex. Here’s how we’re working to create meaningful, positive change for the planet, our people, and the communities where we live and work — and how we can help your company do the same.
Our commitment to sustainability
In partnership with hundreds of workspace providers in 80+ countries around the world, we’re making companies and cities greener.
Why it matters
Workplace flexibility is tremendously more sustainable than the traditional office. Here’s one little example of how:
Every year, employees spend 29.6 billion hours commuting to and from work. Eliminating or reducing commuter travel is the easiest and most effective way for a company or individual to reduce their carbon footprint — 51 million metric tons of carbon emissions could be saved yearly from workplace flexibility.
Nearly half of employees say they would take a pay cut to work for an environmentally conscious company. This opinion is most prevalent among Millennial and Gen Z talent — and by 2025, they’ll comprise 75% of the workforce.
Companies looking to attract top talent know they need to go green, and workplace flexibility is the most efficient way to do it. Ready to learn more?
Achieving sustainability through trees
If your company commits to helping plant 180,000 trees annually, you’ll be removing an estimated 28,770 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere every year. For a 3,000-employee company using Upflex, that’s as simple each employee making 5 bookings per month.

Achieving sustainability by reducing commutes
76.3 percent of people are single car commuters, and the average commute time is 36 minutes each way. By reducing this average commute by 50%, a company of 3,000 peopel can save over 11,000 days on the road.
