GRESB is widely recognised as the global standard for portfolio-level sustainability reporting in the real estate sector. Following the announcement of joint support between GRESB and the PRI, the PRI encourages signatory participation in this year’s Survey. You can register via GRESB’s online portal at www.gresb.com. The Survey will be open for responses between 1 April 2014 and 1 July 2014.
In 2013, 550 property companies and funds participated in the benchmark, representing US$ 1.6 trillion in asset value. Currently, more than 100 GRESB members are using the organisation’s data. You can access a list of all investors using GRESB data on the GRESB website, at www.gresb.com/members.
Benchmarking sustainability performance helps generate the market forces needed to bring environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues to the forefront of business. The results of the survey can be used as a toolkit for internal and external engagement, and participation will allow you to provide your existing and potential investors with information regarding ESG performance, something that is increasingly important in the current real estate investment market.
