Canary Wharf Group

Canary Wharf Group (CWG) is the developer of the largest urban regeneration project in Europe. CWG develops, manages, and currently owns interests in approximately 9 million square feet of mixed-use space and over 1,100 Build to Rent apartments. One of the greatest feats of civic engineering, turning a once derelict Docklands into 97 acres of London’s – and the world’s – most sought-after office and retail space. 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.

Canary Wharf Group’s sustainability strategy is built around four focus areas. We believe that by focusing our intentions across these areas, we will not only be able to continue to mitigate our environmental impact, but we will maximise the value we create for those who live and work in Canary Wharf: 

•    Creating a space where nature and people can thrive.
•    We are turning our ambition to be net zero, into action. 
•    Transitioning from a linear to a circular economy.   
•    Creating positive change through shared social purpose, connecting our communities and customers in areas where we can make a difference.   

Key Facts:

  • Since 2009, we have sent zero waste to landfill certified across our managed areas
  • We currently have 2 BREEAM Outstanding projects
  • A unique partnership with the charity and social enterprise the Eden Project to support our sustainability strategy and reimagine our public realm starting with our Middle Dock Transformation.
