Health and well-being are rapidly emerging as important topics for the real estate industry. At the asset level, the market recognizes the value of health as demonstrated by the interest generated by the WELL Building Standard. At the portfolio level, real estate investors have unique opportunities to scale value creation beyond building certifications. However, investors, property companies and fund managers currently lack adequate health-focused indicators and benchmarking tools at the portfolio level.

Recognizing health as an emerging source of opportunity and risk, and to better inform investors, GRESB is working together with its stakeholders to develop a supplemental module specific to health and well-being. The GRESB Health & Well-being Module will be released alongside the GRESB Real Estate Assessment on April 1, 2016.

To inform the development of the GRESB Health & Well-being Module, GRESB is convening a Health Industry Working Group (IWG) and invites GRESB members to actively participate. Members of the Health IWG will be able to provide written and verbal feedback on pre-release versions of the GRESB Health & Well-being Module. GRESB will hold two sets of the Health IWG calls, scheduled for:

  • January 21, 2016

     13 – 14 SGT/ 16 – 17 AEDT

     16 – 17 CET/10 – 11 am EST

  • February 4, 2016

     13 – 14 SGT/ 16 – 17 AEDT

     16 – 17 CET/10 – 11 am EST

GRESB Members interested in joining the Health Industry Working Group should contact GRESB via info@gresb.com.
