GRESB, the global standard for environmental, social and governance (ESG) benchmarking for real assets, invites you to participate in the 2016 GRESB assessments. Assessment results are used by investors and fund managers to understand the risk and return profile of real estate and infrastructure investments.
The 2016 scope of GRESB includes four distinct assessments—the Real Estate Assessment, the Developer Assessment, the Debt Assessment and the Infrastructure Assessment.
- The Real Estate Assessment delivers a streamlined reporting process from asset to portfolio; this process is unique in the ESG space and leads to deep data insights for investors. The Real Estate Assessment also includes a health and well-being module, which is an optional supplement to evaluate and benchmark action to promote health and well-being by real estate companies and funds.
- The Developer Assessment evaluates the ESG performance of organizations that focus on real estate development activities.
- The Debt Assessment supports participation by banks, life companies, pension funds and mortgage REITs, in addition to real estate debt funds.
- The Infrastructure Assessment has been developed in partnership with leading institutional investors, with the goal of establishing the global standard for ESG reporting and benchmarking of infrastructure investments.
The assessment is open on the GRESB portal from April 1 to July 1, 2016. Results will be published in October 2016.
