Accepted by Jennifer Skyler
Chief Communications Officer
New Yorkers for Parks (NY4P) has inaugurated the Corporate Champion 4 Sustainability Award in 2018 to recognize the inspirational and transformational leadership of corporate citizens in creating sustainable cities and communities. NY4P welcomes the opportunity to present its inaugural award to WeWork.
Founded in New York in 2010, WeWork and its nearly 300,000 members are changing the way we work, live and learn all over the world. The company’s approach to sustainability examines its impact on cities, communities and members through three key pillars: energy, materials, and health. WeWork has recently committed to becoming fully carbon-neutral across global operations no later than 2023, to removing major single-use plastics (including cups, straws, utensils and more) from all of its 287 locations by the end of 2018, and to no longer serve or pay for meat as a company. Whether it’s being open to new ideas, changing daily habits, reimagining how we build buildings, or changing the way we do business, WeWork believes everyone has an opportunity to take action.
Central Park is closed to traffic. To reach The Boathouse, you enter the park at Fifth Avenue and 72nd Street and follow the traffic road to the right. It is a very pleasant walk and should take between three and six minutes.
Small parking garages may be found as close as 72nd and 73rd off of Fifth Avenue, but The Boathouse suggests using the Metropolitan Museum’s garage at 80th Street and Fifth Avenue. It is large enough that you will always find a space and is open 24 hours.
Shuttle service will be available at approximately fifteen minute intervals to take guests to and from Fifth Avenue and The Boathouse. It stops at the corner of 72nd Street and at 80th Street near the Metropolitan Museum’s garage. Look for a trolley or van with The Loeb Boathouse name on the window.
