Each year, GRESB assesses and benchmarks the ESG performance of infrastructure assets worldwide and monitors the sector’s progress towards global sustainability goals. GRESB Assessments are guided by what investors and the industry consider to be material issues in the sustainability performance of real asset investments and are aligned with international reporting frameworks such as GRI and PRI.
