WeWork Launches Company-Wide Meat Ban To Protect Environment

By

1 Minutes Read

WeWork –
a major corporation specializing in coworking spaces and fostering startups –
has announced a company-wide ban on meat.

Ban

WeWork will
no longer be serving meat at company events, nor will it reimburse the cost of
meat for its employees.

The ban
will cover red meat, poultry, and pork – and will impact WeWork’s roughly 6000
employees.

Environmental
concerns

The
company was clear in stating that the move was motivated by environmental
concerns.

According
to a company-wide email shared by CNN, WeWork anticipates it will save ‘an
estimated 16.7 billion gallons of water, 445.1 million pounds (201.9 million
kg) of CO2 emissions, and over 15 million animals by 2023? with the change of
policy.

Co-founder
Miguel McKelvey also added that ‘the [culinary] team has worked hard to create
a sustainable, plentiful, and delicious menu’.

Conscious
company

This is
not the first sign WeWork has shown of having an environmental conscience.

A
zero-waste plan is also detailed on the company website – where is says the ‘goal
is to make WeWork as planet-friendly as possible’.

Reusable
bottles, compostable cups, and glasses have taken the place of the plastic cups
formerly used at WeWork – while the company has also upgraded its recycling
system to better serve the planet.
