More than half of the world's population lives in cities - a number that is set to increase to 70 percent by 2050. With so many people living, working and traveling to cities, many urban hubs around the globe are facing significant challenges.

We’re leveraging our core strengths to unlock more possibilities for people and businesses by helping city leaders improve efficiency, promote economic growth and ensure inclusion. We’re achieving this through: powerful partnerships, innovative technology, critical insights.
