Co-working company Glandore which offers flexible workspace across nine locations in Dublin, Belfast and Cork is turning its workspaces green.

Since 2001, the Kelly family have grown the operation to over 3,500 desks and now have committed to using 100pc renewable energy across all of its locations.

This is being achieved through the installation of solar panels and smart light sensors within their coworking spaces, reducing the company's carbon footprint and that of its clients.

In addition, Glandore introduced recycling and composting facilities and electric car charging ports at its Fitzwilliam Hall, Dublin property.

"Flexible workspace by their very definition are green," said Glandore Director, Fiona Kelly. "The priority is to reduce waste entirely and to create a platform whereby our members have the opportunity to do the same."
