Many external sustainability rating initiatives, indexes and benchmarks have been developed to help understand and identify how well these risks and opportunities are being addressed. Amongst others, these include the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB), CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project), Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) and FTSE4GOOD.
EVORA has extensive experience of voluntary reporting initiatives. In the last 12 months, we supported more than 40 funds, representing €25billion Gross Asset Value to complete a GRESB submission.
GRESB is fast becoming the sustainability survey of choice for the real estate sector to benchmark portfolio performance. The survey is comprehensive and this year the questions posed new challenges for respondents.
EVORA has helped a large number of funds complete the survey, including Schroders, AEW and Moorfield. Our experience and relationship with the GRESB team has enabled us to provide comprehensive client support – and in all cases improved results.
We can work with you to complete the submission and understand your scoring, as well as develop a sustainability plan that will improve your future GRESB performance and align with your organisation’s key environmental objectives.

” EVORA directly oversaw the advice, preparation and coordination to submit the HECF portfolio responses to the GRESB survey for the first time. The team’s help was invaluable; they always made themselves available to respond to our many questions. They have a very clear understanding of the GRESB survey and what the meaning of the questions was while orientating us in responding to them in the best way. The EVORA team was able to work with the various key people in our local and central platform in order to extract the necessary information.”
