Sustainable Workspaces

 

Sustainable Workspaces is the UK’s leading incubator of early stage sustainable businesses, leading London’s shift towards a low-carbon economy.

Their development of around 45,000 sq ft of space which has been unused for nearly 40 years will see the iconic County Hall become Sustainable Ventures’ HQ and flagship site as the epicentre of Europe’s largest sustainability hub in SE1. The space will support over 100 sustainable businesses and will provide business support, as well as an opportune space for businesses with access to investors and expertise across the sector.

£1.45 million of funding from the first round of the Future Workspace Fund, alongside £3.3 million from Big Issue Invest is allowing Sustainable Workspaces to complete the fit out works of the site in full.

This commitment of investment has also allowed Sustainable Workspaces to take space on the 3rd floor of County Hall whilst the 5th floor is developed, meaning that more than 50 pioneering businesses are already benefitting from this space. The 5th floor is expected to open by the end of 2022.

Stuart Ferguson, Investment Partner at Sustainable Ventures, said:

“Without this funding from the Future Workspace Fund, we would not have been able to undertake the development of our new workspace at County Hall.

It was fantastic that the Fund team was able to see past the short-term Covid challenges to collaborate on this project, which will result in the creation of one of Europe’s leading centres for climate change innovation.

The new workspace will help us support the best climate change focused entrepreneurs to scale their businesses, whilst creating jobs, training opportunities and inward investment into the Borough.”
