What data do you provide?

GRESB assesses the sustainability performance of infrastructure funds and assets worldwide. We offer ESG data, Scorecards, Benchmark Reports and portfolio analysis tools. GRESB provides investors and managers with high quality, granular data and analytics on the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance of real asset investments. GRESB Investor Members with access to our infrastructure dataset receive an in-depth analysis of the ESG performance of infrastructure funds and assets, as well as their performance against their peers via the Benchmark report. In 2018, 75 funds and 280 assets participated in the Assessments, covering 62 countries and 24 sectors. The dataset also includes data from GRESB Public Disclosure – which evaluates the level of public ESG disclosure by listed infrastructure companies (full GLIO Global Coverage).

Where and how do you source your data?

ESG Data is submitted on an annual basis by infrastructure companies, funds, and assets through indicators from the GRESB Infrastructure Assessment. GRESB assesses and validates the submitted data to ensure that investors and managers who use the data can rely on it. Based on the validation conclusion, GRESB applies an objective scoring model to score and benchmark each participant. This process is completed directly through the GRESB Portal, a 100% secure online environment. GRESB Public Disclosure data is collected from publicly available sources and added to the GRESB Portal. Each year, between April 1st – July 1st, listed infrastructure companies have the opportunity to review and amend the public disclosure data collected by GRESB.

Who are the data users?

Institutional investors, pension funds, and insurance companies use GRESB data. Investors that have access to an entity’s Benchmark Report get a detailed understanding of the ESG performance of the companies and funds they invest/or intend to invest in.
