Canary Wharf has always been about evolution, innovation and regeneration. When the West India Docks opened in 1802 they were considered to be the country’s greatest civil engineering structure and they became a catalyst for prosperity, industry and development. We have been at the forefront of economic and technological change ever since.
Over the past 30 years we have achieved another great feat of civic engineering. 17 million square feet of London’s disused docklands have evolved into one of the world’s leading business, retail and lifestyle districts. We’re now looking to the future and the next 30 years of our evolution.
We create places with longevity and community in mind. Our challenge is to support this aim with a clearly defined vision for sustainability which takes into account the risks we face and the opportunities in front of us.
In an uncertain world that faces substantial economic, environmental, social and political challenges, we’re confident that our vision and approach will enable us to be sustainable and successful as we continue to adapt and evolve.
“We want the spaces we create to be home to vibrant, diverse and thriving mixed-use communities, places in which people love to work, live and relax. We aim to create landmarks that express the values upon which our business is built: vision, inspiration, quality, efficiency, resilience and economy.
We have created this strategy to underpin our Vision and Values and set out our long term aspirations as we all work together to Make Sustainability REAL”
