Building an Innovative City
Preparing for the Future

The world is rapidly changing, and the global population is becoming increasingly urban. In fact, 55% of the world’s population now live in urban areas, and this is due to rise to 68% by 2050.

As the world continues to urbanise, sustainable development depends increasingly on the successful management of growth – and Canary Wharf is no exception. We’re embracing new technology and ideas to find the solutions that will help us shape the city of tomorrow.

Our purpose from day one has been rooted in pioneering new ways of thinking, of doing things – of embracing the future. That spirit continues to guide us today as we aim to educate and engage those who visit our space.

We constantly seek to add value to society. That’s why we’re collaborating with entrepreneurs in emerging technology fields, and using the latest tech throughout our estate ­– helping us to operate more efficiently and improve people’s productivity.

Staying at the forefront of connectivity and new technologies is critical to our community.
Mark Nallen, Head of Technology and Innovation, Canary Wharf Group
