The Investor-driven Global ESG Benchmark for the Infrastructure Sector

The Infrastructure Fund Assessment assesses the ESG performance of infrastructure funds.

Institutional investors are demanding information about the ESG management and investment processes undertaken by fund managers.  The Infrastructure Fund Assessment addresses this need through a consistent, globally applicable reporting and benchmarking framework.

What is the GRESB Infrastructure Fund Assessment?

The GRESB Infrastructure Fund Assessment provides the basis for systematic reporting, objective scoring and peer benchmarking of ESG management and performance of infrastructure funds around the world.  The process is unique in the ESG space and leads to deep data insights for investors and infrastructure fund managers.

The Fund Assessment contains 11 indicators focused on management and investment processes. These indicators address foundational ESG plans and policies, leadership and accountability, engagement strategies, communications processes and other factors.

Additionally, the fund’s underlying assets may participate in the complimentary Infrastructure Asset Assessment.  While the participation of underlying assets is not required, funds participating with at least 25% of assets will receive an overall GRESB score and be allocated to a corresponding peer group.

The data are subjected to a multi-layer validation process and the result is high-quality data that investors and participants can use in their investment and decision-making processes.
