A new vision
for a new world

We are more than just a real estate firm.

We drive innovation forward, creating positive economic, social and environmental outcomes based on a belief that we can do well by doing right.

FORE Partnership is leading the transformation of the built environment into a low-carbon, socially impactful future.

Active in the UK and Europe, with a focus on offices, mixed-use urban properties, and the living sector, we are setting new benchmarks for sustainability and social impact across our commercial property portfolio.

FORE Partnership - Net Zero Corporation

We specialise in recycling, repurposing, enhancing, and repositioning existing buildings. With a strong focus on design quality, we transform these buildings into future-facing assets, capturing the green premium.

We have made an industry-leading commitment to achieve net-zero across our business and portfolio by 2025. But we have gone further, committing to a “retrofit first” strategy. With 80% of the buildings that will exist in 2050 – the UK’s Net Zero deadline – already built, our focus is on existing standing assets.

We are proud to be a certified B Corporation.

Our B Corp Certification

Whatever the opportunity, we create future-proofed, ultra-sustainable income generating assets that provide a new generation of end users with environments in which they can thrive, while satisfying investor demand for profitability.

Originally set up by a team out of Capricorn Investment Group, the family office of eBay first president and billionaire philanthropist Jeff Skoll, FORE has since acquired more than 1.2 m sq ft commercial and residential property with a forecast exit value of more than £650 million. All told, the FORE team has directly acquired 87 properties representing in excess of 5.5 million sq ft of space.

A recognised industry leader in ESG real estate, we invest capital on behalf of a range of private and institutional investors from Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East, as well as corporates and global multinationals seeking to be part of our ecosystem as they are faced with disruptive transformation in their core businesses.

FORE Partnership - Certified B Corporation

Our track record proves that delivering strong economic returns for all stakeholders does not come at expense of our mission. In fact, it is our mission that generates the positive outcomes.

In a world facing a climate catastrophe, a deep commitment to sustainability and social impact is not a trade-off that comes at the expense of investor returns: the two are indivisible.

The success of our approach, which we call Building FOREward, proves that not only can we do well by doing right – we can do better.
