At Woodbourne Group, we’re committed to operating in an ethical manner. We put integrity at the heart of everything we do, ensuring that our decision making is always guided by our values.
We recognise that intelligent investing is more than returns. It’s about fostering a sustainable, and above all responsible, approach through everything we do. Any business serious about creating long term value has to place ESG at the heart of its operations. In development terms, that means that sustainability has to be more than just a box-ticking exercise. It has to inform the project from the initial development stage through to completion.
In practice, this means we will only work with companies that reduce their impact on the environment while prioritising a strong social ethos and good governance. We’re committed to the UN Principles of Responsible Investment and look to partner with companies that can help us achieve our goals while ensuring a positive impact on the environment and society.

Woodbourne Group fosters a positive approach to corporate social responsibility. It’s an integral part of our day-to-day activities, not just as an afterthought or as window dressing. We believe that CSR is not only good for the community, it’s also sound business practice.
CSR is primarily about the long-term health of our society and planet and it informs sustainable decision making. With this in mind we’re proud to be members of the UK Green Building Council and we do our utmost to lead by example. Our groundbreaking Curzon Wharf development will be the world’s first mixed-use net zero carbon development that will pave the way for future eco building projects. This development has been warmly welcomed by environmental leaders, worldwide.

Our core values are the cornerstone of our success. They have assured cohesion across our operations, underpinning our commitment and longevity.
