GRESB is an institutional investor-sponsored global disclosure program that assesses the environmental, social and governance performance of public and private real estate, infrastructure and mortgage companies and funds.
Our team has supported numerous companies with GRESB Infrastructure and Real Estate Assessment submissions. We also participate in GRESB technical working groups and contribute to GRESB training. Through working with clients on GRESB survey simulation and response submission, we have developed effective methodologies and tools for data collection, portfolio footprinting and verification, including outreach to third party portfolio companies and asset operators. This helps our clients simplify, validate and accelerate survey submission, and identify improvement opportunities at the fund and asset level.
