GRESB Assessments capture information regarding Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance and sustainability best practices for real estate and infrastructure portfolios and provide standardized and validated data to the capital investment markets.

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.

Once assessed, our clients will 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 can also then use this ESG data and GRESB’s analytical tools to monitor their investments, discuss issues with their managers, and make decisions that lead to more sustainable real assets.

GRESB has Assessments covering: Real Estate, and Infrastructure.
