Canary Wharf Group Defines the City of the Future
 

Canary Wharf Group’s vision is to inspire positive impact by creating places that are healthy, thriving, sustainable and future-ready, and in its latest report, Making Sustainability Real it defines the City of the Future as Circular, Positive, Innovative, Responsible and Measured. The Group also calls for greater collaboration, as it acknowledges the need for urgency to tackle the global challenges facing all of us.

“Our children are demanding a better world for all life on Earth.
Science warns us that we must act now if we are to stabilise our climate and halt the environmental degradation that mankind has set in motion.
There is time to resolve this, though time is not on our side.
We are proud of our achievements – there are many in this report – but we are not standing still.
We know there is more to do, and in this activity, we are seriously engaged.
Please join us in Making Sustainability Real”

Sir George Iacobescu CBE,
Chief Executive and Chairman of Canary Wharf Group plc
