Environmental, Social & Governance

Our vision as an organisation is to transform urban spaces into extraordinary environments. As an integrated developer, contractor and property manager, we are in a unique position to embed sustainable principles right from the initial design of our buildings, creating healthy, vibrant developments that benefit everyone.

2022 Sustainability Report

Our aim is to create developments that go beyond functionality to create spaces that enhance the wellbeing of the people who live and work in them. This means working to provide space for biodiversity, building in energy efficiency, and minimising waste. Since the start of the BREEAM scheme in 1998, all our buildings have been certified; with over 10 million sq ft of sustainably certified floorspace constructed.

Canary Wharf Group

The Felix Project

We are pleased to share details of our partnership with The Felix Project, a charity that tackles food poverty by distributing surplus food to those who need it.

Like Felix we believe in creating long-lasting social impact while prioritising sustainability. As a responsible business with access to a high concentration of retailers and businesses on our estate we believe we should use our position to partner with our customers to create a community that supports The Felix Project’s work and make a long-term difference to those who need it locally.

Our first priority is to roll out a green scheme to stop surplus, quality food from Canary Wharf’s cafes, restaurants, offices and supermarkets from being wasted. A team of volunteers will collect and sustainably deliver the food directly to local schools and community groups around the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, on foot or in the dedicated electric van in Canada Square car park. We are seeking green scheme volunteers, if you or your business would like to hear more about the project or how to get involved please register your details here or read our press release for more information

    Climate Action

    The climate emergency is by far the biggest crisis facing humanity in the years and decades to come. We’ve produced an ambitious Net Zero Carbon Pathway detailing the steps we’re taking to become net zero carbon by 2030. This pathway is underpinned by our approved Science Based Targets and provides clear KPIs which will help us reach net zero, supporting the global transition to net zero and securing a clean, sustainable future for our children.

    Beyond Zero Waste

    Canary Wharf is a micro-city located on the River Thames, with over 120,000 people living and working on the Estate every day. This unique environment presents us with an opportunity to tackle waste, creating a culture of reuse where nothing is wasted. In 2019 we were the first commercial district in the world to achieve Plastic Free Communities status from marine conservation charity Surfers Against Sewage, and we are carrying that momentum forward to close the loop on all materials across our construction and management operations to create a truly circular economy.

    Better Environment


    With so much of our time being spent inside, it’s important that we create buildings that are not just functional but improve the wellbeing of those who use them. Our wellbeing programme includes KPIs to not only improve the wellbeing of the people who live and work in Canary Wharf, but also support the vast array of biodiversity found on our Estate.

    Better Community

    Responsible Business

    Since we began construction of Canary Wharf in 1987, we’ve been committed to supporting the community we operate in, delivering projects that truly benefit everyone. Through supporting local businesses, volunteering in local schools, engaging our supply chain and tracking and reporting our impacts, we have created a truly responsible business that creates value far beyond the walls of our own offices.

    Corporate Policies

    Canary Wharf Group is a commercial organisation and like any commercial organisation it must operate profitably and economically. However, the way in which we conduct ourselves in the course of such operations is of crucial importance, not only to the Group and its workers but to those with whom it conducts business (both tenants and suppliers) and to the community at large.
