UK GBC embarks on Innovation Lab with Canary Wharf Group

The UK Green Building Council has teamed up with our parent company, the Canary Wharf Group, Marks and Spencers and Land Securities to run an innovation programme described as a ‘radical new approach’ to ‘innovative and highly sustainable solutions’ in the built-environment sector.

It’s a pioneering 9-month programme between the property and retail sectors – as Marks & Spencers, one of Britain’s biggest retail brands, has joined to help foster innovation and explore trends of the built environment.

An initial workshop has already taken place (At Level39) which identified the breakthrough challenges to focus on for the next nine months.

“At UK-GBC we’re seeking to catalyse this change by using our unique position to convene our member organisations to work together to address the issues our industry faces.  We want to ensure there is the time, space, and structure for open innovation to occur for the built environment.”
