Why not if it actually means so very much to Igloo  and it isn't just to get people talking about it. Which we all have been so they seem to have won that one 🙄

Maybe it should mean more to their employees.

I think that the job you are employed to do is the important bit and what you should be passionate about. All businesses (with the exception of charaties and none profit making organisations) are about making profit. I know that's true as I work in the accounts dept. Expenses/ pensions/ benefits are the bit that are there to make sure that you have happy, well looked after employees. If you're going to make a statement about your company make it  in your work stand out by being good at what you do get 5* ratings have happy repeat customers. Don't do it by making the focus on employee expenses and dividing public opinions. By doing this Igloo have made themselves the business equivalent of Marmite. In an industry with plentiful competition you don't want to make enemies so very quickly about your expenses policy.

Absolutely not.

 

We’ve had companies in thrall to the profit motive for the last 70 years. That hasn’t worked out so well.

 

We need more companies like Igloo. More social responsibility. More nuance. 
 

Simply pursuing profit is for previous generations. The current generation have damage to repair.

You’re missing the point again.

 

this isn’t about making profit - it’s about an initiative to help giving you, your family and your future family somewhere to live.

It's about meat. If there was no meat then we'd eat vegetarian. There is meat so people have choice now today tomorrow. If we all stopped eating meat tomorrow we'd be putting an industry out of work. If we all cycled to work or drove electric car same result people out of work. We have choice and change doesn't happen overnight it's a gradual process of education and knowledge. I'll eat meat and drive my car to work tomorrow to work at a similar company to igloo in accounts. That's my choice. You can make your choice and I have no problem with it why have a problem with my choice?

Load of claptrap. In the real world businesses exist to make profit. Then at there good will they use there position to help support /sponsor worthy causes. The government has responsibility for protecting the environment.

That’s pretty outdated thinking.

 

Soon,  any company following a philosophy like yours will disappear up their own, badly maintained, exhaust pipe .

This is a strawman argument - I've never said that over-population isn't an issue.

 

That doesn't mean you ignore every other human activity that has an environmental impact as a consequence.

Is it not true that this estate agent is in business to achieve the best price for their clients which in turn achieves the best comission (profit) for themselves?

 

"The sale took less than two weeks and we were delighted to receive a greater value than the home report. This was down to the way Igloo marketed the property. Craig, Carrie and Lelsey were in constant contact with arranging viewings and viewers feedback."  

 

"Our directors and team are very focused on the results we achieve for our customers – whether that’s length of time on the market, best price achieved, customer satisfaction surveys or property performance."
