BREEAM and GRESB are partnering to recognize the achievement of the real estate community in high performance levels in responsible and sustainable real estate investment.
The BREEAM Awards is an annual event recognizing the achievement of exemplary BREEAM certified projects around the world. BREEAM and GRESB are adding a new dimension for 2017 with two new award categories:
Leadership in Responsible Real Estate Investment – for the individual that has made the most valuable contribution to driving more sustainable real estate investment, and shown a personal commitment to driving sustainable investment and management within their own organization through the use of building certifications.
Corporate Investment in Responsible Real Estate – for the real estate investment company that has made the strongest commitment to the use of building certifications in managing their portfolio. The judging criteria for this award is based on the proportion of total existing portfolio formally assessed and certified under generally accepted building certifications and the level of commitment to drive the achievement of higher rating levels through corporate policies.
The winners of the awards will be announced at the BREEAM Awards 2017 for the real estate and construction sectors which takes place on Tuesday, March 7, at the London Marriott hotel. Full details including ticketing information can be found at www.breeam.com/awards.
GRESB members are encouraged to attend the black tie gala dinner. The compere for the evening is Michael Portillo, former UK politician, now a television presenter. The night will also be a networking opportunity for the real estate investment and construction community.
