Being a Responsible Business
Doing the Right Thing– Now, and in the Future
Being a responsible business is about leading by example – taking action to support our strategy of Making Sustainability Real. We want to build a city that’s forward-looking and sustainable, benefiting the wider community.
We’re building the world’s first SDG-compliant city – a place that contributes to economic growth, creates employment, nurtures ability, promotes inclusion and diversity, keeps everyone on our Estate safe and secure, and enhances wellbeing for all our stakeholders. That means being open, honest and accountable in all we do. It also means recognising the many challenges in the way, and empowering people who work for and with us to understand that, by getting involved and taking small actions to tackle those challenges, they can collectively make a huge difference.
Through our actions and behaviour, and by always looking to improve the management of our impact, we strive to be a responsible city.
Climate change is one of the biggest global challenges. We’re developing science-based targets to address this issue.
As a business committed to openness and transparency, we believe in listening and talking to all our stakeholders. Our materiality assessment identified 18 priority issues of real significance to the Group.
Our talented team have the ability, talent, drive and attitude to take us forward. 91% of our employees say they are proud to work at here.
We strive to support and encourage a diverse workforce.86.7% of our employees have received diversity training.
The places we create are designed to enhance wellbeing, so health and safety is a priority. 1.98 million hours were worked without a Lost-time Accident on our Wood Wharf project in 2018.
In a time of heightened security, ensuring the safety of people who work at or visit our estate is imperative. 120,000 people work at and visit Canary Wharf every day.
