Sustainability at Canary Wharf
Canary Wharf isn’t just a beautiful place to work, it’s also proactively contributing to a better planet. From acres of green spaces to a dedicated Biodiversity Action Plan, a partnership with the Eden Project and measurable actions to set out in our Net Zero Carbon Pathway, sustainability is built into our DNA.

Aligning with our values
Reaching carbon net zero
Why follow when you can lead? We have set ourselves the ambition of being net zero by 2030, and have a clear pathway of how to achieve this goal, with approved science-based targets. In our construction and office fit-outs we use sustainable materials such as FSC certified timber and reuse materials where possible.
We have sent zero waste to landfill in managed areas since 2009 and we are looking closely at construction waste. We have been purchasing electricity from renewable sources for our operations since 2012. We’re not stopping there either; in pursuit of our net zero ambition, Canary Wharf offices and retail spaces are to be powered by clean energy following a long-term agreement to support our renewable energy goals and facilitate the construction of an onshore wind farm that will supply Canary Wharf with clean, sustainable, and affordable energy.
