Whatever your business, the old maxim that ‘information is King’ has always been true. But in this age of responsible investing and the wider implications for society as a whole, it has never been more critical to our collective future.

GRESB was, as many people know, set up nearly a decade ago by key players who recognised that Sustainable Real Assets play a critical role in creating a sustainable world – one where society can meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.

GRESB assesses the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance of real estate and infrastructure portfolios and assets worldwide. We offer ESG data, Scorecards, Benchmark Reports and portfolio analysis tools.

The Assessments are guided by what investors and the industry consider to be material issues in the sustainability performance of real asset investments and are aligned with international reporting frameworks such as GRI and PRI.

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.
