GRESB is the environmental, social and governance (ESG) benchmark for real assets. Working in collaboration with the industry, GRESB defines the global standard for sustainability performance in real assets, providing standardized and validated ESG data to the capital markets.
More than 80 institutional investors, collectively representing over USD 18 trillion in institutional capital, use GRESB data and analytical tools. In 2018, a record 903 property companies and funds participated in the GRESB Real Estate Assessment, the Infrastructure Assessment covered 75 funds and 280 assets and 25 portfolios completed the Debt Assessment.
What does GRESB do?
GRESB assesses the sustainability performance of real estate and infrastructure portfolios and assets worldwide. We offer ESG data, Scorecards, Benchmark Reports and portfolio analysis tools.
Assessment participants receive comparative business intelligence on where they stand against their peers, a roadmap with the actions they can take to improve their ESG performance and a communication platform to engage with investors.
Investors use the ESG data and GRESB’s analytical tools to improve the sustainability performance of their investment portfolios, engage with managers and prepare for increasingly rigorous ESG obligations.
