Like-minded partners working to see long term results
Positive impact, regenerative action, ongoing value. It should all last, even in a fast-changing world.
Futureground took root in 2016 when we stepped back from the individual stages of the property lifecycle to consider both the minutiae and the whole. Since then we have become a critical friend to many, helping to create a positive impact that endures.
We have always wanted the built environment to have a good legacy.
What it looks like in practice
Each client’s situation is different but we’ve also seen the same kinds of stories play out time and again.
- A local authority is uncertain whether their net zero carbon plan is bold, deliverable and will achieve what is needed
- A company wants to move beyond compliance to unlock real value and opportunity from sustainable business
- An organisation has a sustainability plan but is struggling to create the right culture and ways of working to get results

A handpicked network of sustainable place strategists
Futureground is built upon the experience of strategists who know how to make everything work on the ground. We have lived in and therefore understand the industry, and our cross-sector perspective gives you a clear view of the opportunities in your project or organisation.
How we work
Today, finding a way forward in the built environment requires us to reassess the thinking behind the processes and culture that brought us to this point.
In a sense we are advocates of jazz over classical music. A sustainability strategy cannot set out precisely what the equivalent of the third french horn should play in two decades time. But it is possible to establish the key, core themes and motifs, and we can equip players with skills, instruments and the instinct to know when to play.
For us, that starts by taking ideas and strategy and grounding them in a whole system approach.
