A connected city is a sustainable city
Our cities are home to more than half of the world’s population, it’s where many of us earn a living, raise families and connect with different cultures and people in our communities. They’re also crucial to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
By 2050, 70% of the world’s population will be living in cities*, what happens in cities will influence the well-being of most of humanity. Which is why we’re proud to be recognized as the Business Avenger for Goal 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities – one of, only 16 other companies in the world who champion a specific Global Goal.
Coronavirus lockdowns have impacted cities and communities all over the world in dramatic ways. The recent shift to work-from-home workforces has had a major impact for our cities, businesses, and our individual health and happiness. Now more than ever, technology helps us redefine and regenerate post-pandemic cities and the workplace.

A new era of working has arrived. Sustainability is front-of-mind as the world starts to examine life after a pandemic
The initial response to the pandemic was all about business continuity but the hasty emergence of distributed workforces in every industry and every region has now compelled organizations to reimagine the workplace. The most visible shift that we're seeing is that the workplace is no longer just a destination, it's about people and how they engage in an increasingly digital and hyper distributed world. The notion of hybrid work is prompting a complete rethink of the workplace. In addition, our research on workplace trends have shown that company executives are also seeing workplace design as a key pillar to their sustainability agenda.
