Sustainability and Supply Chain
As an integrated property developer, Canary Wharf Group is in a unique position to understand how a good design can help to create the cities of the future where people can thrive and prosper in a healthy environment. An expanding portfolio and population demands long-term thinking, so our targets we’ve set are long term and focus on collaboration, innovation and resilience.
We have a number of strategies in place across the business which supports our sustainability objectives for our supply chain.
Our ‘Responsible Procurement Strategy’ and ‘Sustainable Design and Construction Strategy’ aligns with the wider Sustainability Strategy. Our Supply Chain are responsible in achieving the targets set out, from the planning stage through to handover, to ensure delivery of projects in the most sustainable way possible.
Our ‘Sustainable Procurement Plan’ summarises our sustainable principles and aims to guide and monitor procurement practices of all Consultants, Suppliers and Trade Contractors working across all CWCL projects.
Aimed at the Supply Chain, the ‘Sustainable and Healthy Materials Brief’ includes material selection and procurement, paying attention to the environmental and health impacts of materials throughout their lifecycle to support CWG’s aspirations for environmental assessments.
