"Urbanization is inevitable… (it is) a positive for to be harnessed in support of social equality, economic prosperity and ecological security… Urbanization poses tremendous opportunities for a shared, sustainable future.” - Manifesto for Cities. UN Habitat 2012

What is a sustainable city?

A sustainable city is one designed with consideration of environmental impact. It is designed to minimise inputs such as energy, water and food, and outputs, such as heat, air pollution and water pollution.

Sustainable development is an essential part of our business. We believe we can make a substantial contribution to the environmental, social and economic challenges of our time, while protecting, supporting and enhancing the human and natural resources needed in the future.
