Our Purpose

We are the UK’s leading responsible real estate business working with investors, communities, local authorities and landowners who want to make the world better one place at a time.

Why we’re different

igloo believes in doing well by doing good. We fund, deliver and animate great Places. Great for People and for the Planet.

How we do things

Our igloo footprint® approach protects the things we all value most – People, Place and Planet.

Our guiding principles


igloo has been shaping ideas across the development sector for over a decade. We created the world’s first responsible real estate fund and today we are the UK’s leading responsible real estate business delivering development with passion, creativity and a unique entrepreneurial vision.


igloo is known for strongly performing investments that make a positive impact on the people living in the places we create. Our partners, who help us create that impact, come in all shapes and sizes, from global financial institutions to local communities, not for profit organisations and national government bodies.


We always pay close attention to the fabric and identity of the places we create. Working in close partnership with people in our communities, we bring about transformation that protects and harnesses the history and vital ties that bind places together. We’re recognised nationally for our care and dedication to these processes as we continually strive to give towns and cities a critical competitive edge.
