The Co-operative Estates

Occupying a unique position within the UK property market we are proud of our ethical and environmental commitments which include; procuring 98% of our energy from renewable sources, leasing our surplus property to local community groups for a nominal rent and achieving BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ accreditation for 1 Angel Square, The Co-operative’s new Head Office building which is currently under construction.

The Co-operative Estates are the custodian of over 10,000 properties across the UK stretching from the Groups retail trading outlets, through our commercial, investment, residential and agricultural portfolios to NOMA - our highly sustainable, 4 million sq ft mixed use, redevelopment in Manchester City Centre.

In addition to generating a profit from our property interests we are responsible for Facilities, Energy and Risk Management across the Group.
