Sustainability ESG performance benchmark
The systematic evaluation and optimization of sustainability performance are integral parts of Global Real Estate's sustainability strategy.
Accordingly, all 14 real estate investment vehicles from the Core / Core Plus segment (open-ended), totaling around CHF 30 billion, take part in the comparison test of the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB). This test reviews and assesses performance in the areas of environment, social issues, and governance.
2019 was the first year that more than 1,000 real estate funds and companies with more than 130,000 properties participated in GRESB. In total, real estate assets worth more than USD 3.7 trillion were evaluated. GRESB provides real estate companies with the opportunity to compare their own sustainability performance with their respective peer group. The maximum GRESB score is 100 points with a maximum of five GRESB stars for a leading ESG performance.
