TFT is at UKREiiF 2024   


UKREiiF kicks off May 21st, as the wider built environment industries descend on Leeds to talk about the connections between people, places, and business. With its remit to ‘accelerate and unlock sustainable, inclusive, and transformational investment’, TFT will be joining the conversation on both the future of sustainable business, and supporting a more inclusive industry too.

B Corp: ‘To B or not to B?’ – May 21st, Rethinking Places Pavillion (13:00-14:00)

As more than 12,000 investors, developers, occupiers, and contractors gather at the Royal Armouries (just round the corner from our Leeds offices), we’re kicking off the programme with a B Corp focussed panel on day one of the conference.

Mat Lown, Chief Knowledge & ESG Officer, will be asking “To ‘B’ or Not to ‘B’ – Can B Corporations Help Address Our Sector’s ESG Objectives?” He’ll be joined by fellow B Corp panellists in our industry:

  • Olaide Oboh of Socius (Panel Chair)
  • Scott James of Ward Williams
  • Catherine Ramsden of Useful Simple Trust
  • Karyn Williams of Stride Treglown

The panel will cover the five B Corp pillars of Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers, in addition to how certification works for companies like ours in the built environment industries.

If you want to debate and discuss the future of our industry, and the role of B Corp in getting there, come and join in!

Diversity & Inclusion Networking Breakfast – May 22nd, Regeneration Brainery Studio (08:00-09:30)

The second day of UKREiiF begins with a Diversity & Inclusion Networking Breakfast, sponsored by TFT with Women in Property, Freehold LGBT+, the BAME Planners Network, Muslims in Rail and more in attendance.

Freehold LGBT+ drinks reception – May 23rd, Revolucion de Cuba (08:00-09:30)

Finally, on the Wednesday evening, to bring our UKREiiF to a close we have the Freehold LGBT+ drinks reception at Revolucion de Cuba in aid of Stonewall Housing.
