An Assessment participation fee of EUR 4,000 (USD 4,800) will apply for every submission. This fee remains the same as the fee for a single entity in 2021 and will be fixed for the next two years. For participants with a large number of participating portfolios, the total Assessment participation fee will be capped at EUR 40,000 in 2022, and EUR 48,000 in 2023.
The fee covers guidance materials, Helpdesk support, validation and includes access to the Benchmark Report, Data Exporter and Portfolio Analysis Tool. Participants have the flexibility to complete a full Assessment or an individual Assessment Component.
We want to ensure that participation in the benchmark remains as inclusive and accessible as possible. That’s why we will be growing our team in emerging markets, as well as strengthening our support so that participants new to GRESB can get started quickly, and with ease. We will also continue to provide a free online training program to all participants in 2021.
We will invoice all GRESB Participant Members on an annual basis, based on the number of participating entities from the previous reporting year. There will still be a one-off payment option per participating entity at the time of Assessment submission.
By implementing these changes, we’ll strengthen our membership base, better meet the needs of our stakeholders, and provide a simpler, more scalable fee structure that better aligns with the value participants receive from the benchmark.
