GRESB Explained 

GRESB is an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Benchmark for real assets. It defines a global standard for sustainability performance to provide standardised and validated ESG data to capital markets. Investors can use this information to integrate non-financial criteria into their investment decisions and establish levels of risk.

GRESB Assessments capture information on ESG performance for real estate and infrastructure companies. It validates contents of assessments and rates performance against their in-house scoring model so that investors can analyse comparisons and differentiate asset performance.  Practice of ESG strategies is now a critical aspect of risk assessments in investment.

The assessments are steered by what investors and the real estate industry understand to be tangible issue in the environmental and sustainability performance of real asset investments.

Where asset developers utilise GRESB to monitor ESG performance they will gain access to ESG data, scorecards, benchmark reports, and portfolio wide analysis. It will provide annual review of next steps and actions to enhance ESG performance across your  asset portfolios.
