Sustainable workspaces created for today and the future
At JPA Workspaces, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. Our low-carbon, sustainable workspaces are designed to meet the needs of both today and the future.
As experts in sustainability in the workplace, we support you to consume less, buy better and use existing legacy products and materials for longer. This reduces waste and minimises carbon destruction of natural habitats and resources.
We provide due diligence and reporting to support Ska Rating, BREEAM, LEED and WELLBuilding Standard certification.
What does a sustainable workspace look like in practice?
Sustainable workspaces are the future. But what do business leaders need to know about making the workplace more sustainable, and how can JPA Workspaces support you as a consumer and procurer?
Our Head of Sustainability, Fiona Edwards, has developed this paper to share her knowledge about sustainable workplace development, and how to embed this into your business strategy.
At JPA Workspaces, we demonstrate a leading role with award winning service provision, to help our clients and their professional teams Furnish with Purpose – that means making optimal social and environmental impact through furniture specification, provision, installation and ongoing support services.
