FORE Wins Coveted Estates Gazette Award
Huge win for the FORE team at the Estates Gazette 2021 Awards, where we took home the award for Sustainability. The accolade recognises our leadership amongst the wider industry including agents, developers, designers, consultants and investors. Our shortlisted peers were large players like Aviva, British Land, Bruntwood, Nuveen, Oxford Properties, Savills. The formal announcement from EG is here.
The judges were some of the most esteemed peers in the industry. In their comments, the judges noted that “FORE was a standout entry. This is where the industry should be going. It is ambitious and if it keeps going, it will be very big!”
The award specifically:
“is open to all companies active in the built environment, including agents, developers, investors and architects. Judges will be looking for clear, quantitative examples of improvements being taken by your business, through your business practices and, if relevant, across your portfolio, to improve sustainability. This should include measures being taken to reduce carbon emissions, energy use, waste, etc. Clear examples of how key milestones in your journey to net zero have been met should form part of your submission. Judges will be looking for measures implemented and their impact, not just future plans.”
