Get to Grips with GRESB

Address sustainability challenges with GRESB reporting to attract responsible investment.


Highlight transparent ESG performance

Real asset investors face mounting pressure to embrace sustainable Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) practices and transparently communicate their progress and performance to stakeholders.

A high Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) score showcases your commitment to sustainability, attracting responsible investment and enhancing market reputation. The assessment identifies and mitigates ESG risks, informing wise investment decisions for long-term value preservation.

Benchmarking against peers sets sustainable targets aligned with best practices, improving access to capital as investors favour robust ESG practices. It also ensures regulatory compliance and long-term climate resilience for your assets.



Don’t let data slow you down

Successfully submitting a GRESB assessment is no simple task. You need to navigate through time-consuming and complex data collection and validation from various sources. The process is resource-intensive, especially for diverse portfolios. Coordinating with different teams to obtain and disclose accurate ESG data aligned with sustainability practices is a real challenge. Additionally, benchmarking against peers can cause concern if performance falls short, and the costs for data analysis and submissions can be substantial.

Expert assistance can help streamline the process and ensure a successful GRESB score.
