Through our activities and services we strive to have the most positive impact on our community, and the environment. We are constantly working on expanding our range of services, the resources and support we offer to our members.
Bridging the gap between Industry and Sustainability
Powered by Metis Design & Engineering, a mechanical engineering consultancy operating in the heavy industry, HOSX is strongly anchored in industry. We leverage this to strengthen the connection between industry and sustainability, and encourage businesses of all sizes to adopt better and more sustainable practice.
Through our membership benefits, we want to support and make it easier for organisations wanting to do the right thing and operate more sustainably.
Our members benefit from a network of professionals in all industries, passionate about sustainability across the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
We also raise awareness and educate on various sustainability matters with regular Lunch and Learn sessions, monthly sustainability events, educational workshops and educational programs.
Fostering Innovation & Collaboration
Today’s biggest challenges call for innovative approaches, new technologies and collaboration.
At HOSX, we support a start up and innovation eco-system hosted at our co-working space in Fremantle.
Through partnership, we support this eco-system by running accelerator programs and providing business advice.
Our online members database and collaboration tools facilitate connections, communication and collaboration between our members. It allows new start-ups to connect with established businesses and corporate members, offering peer mentoring opportunities.
Our members also get access to and support for design and engineering technologies such as CAD, CAE, 3D Scanning, 3D Printing, Virtual Reality and Augmented provided by Metis Design & Engineering, our resident founding organisation.
Eligible start-ups may get sponsored access to our co-working space.
Promoting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
At HOSX, all our members have adopted at least one of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and are committed to have a positive impact on this SDG.
We support them in achieving their goals by connecting them with sustainability experts in our community, giving them access to educational resources and community learning sessions, as well as promoting them and what they have achieved.
Providing a collaborative space for like-minded organisations
HOSX started has a small coworking space on Essex Street in Fremantle. We have since expanded in much larger premises and are currently able to provide over 35 permanent desks in an open space arrangement, 10 hot desks, 2 private offices and 3 meeting rooms.
Our office space is net-zero, i.e 100% of our emissions are offset with Carbon Positive. We are signatory of the CitySwitch program, and are continuously working on improving the sustainability of our operations.
The Hub on SX operates on the traditional lands of the Whadjuk Noongar people, and we pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. We acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region.
