The Approach

EVORA Global has supported Bouwinvest with environmental data assurance covering:

  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG)

Data collected by Bouwinvest and property managers was reviewed, sample tested and verified to evaluate trends and test accuracy.

Key Outcomes

Results have helped Bouwinvest:

  • Understand data accuracy
  • Develop improvement management plans of environmental data
  • Maintain maximum points under the GRESB ‘Data Monitoring and Review’ section – contributing 5.5% of overall GRESB scores.
