Listed property groups we invest in have both been highlighted as leaders in the industrial, office and retail investment sector, committed to ESG transparency & collaboration from across the global real estate industry by the GRESB 2020 Real Estate. Despite a turbulent year marred by COVID-19, involvement in the 2020 GRESB Real Estate Benchmark accelerated to cover 1229 portfolios – compared to 1005 last year – worth more than $4.8 trillion USD.

Reflecting the growing recognition that the UN Sustainable Development Goals provide a useful reference point for members measuring the impact of their investments, environmental performance indicators were reported at asset-level for more than 96,000 assets across 64 countries.
