The formal management system was established in 2002 using the framework provided in the international standard ISO 14001:1996. From the outset the system has been established to cover Canary Wharf Group activities throughout the estate and includes interactions with the local community.
Environmental Management certification was achieved with British Standards Institution in February 2005.
We have received two visits per year from BSI since the initial registration and maintained certification through the revision to ISO 14001 in 2004.
Environmental management has been an inherent part of construction on all projects since 2002 and has included Building Research Establishment and Considerate Constructors schemes where we have received ‘excellent’ ratings.
The documented management system continues to support all aspects of construction and building management on the estate and now includes a Biodiversity Plan and Waste Management Plan.
Group environmental performance is reported each year in the annual Corporate Responsibility Report with performance statistics independently verified by Bureau Veritas.
