Benchmark Report

The GRESB Benchmark Report provides an in-depth analysis of the ESG performance of a company, fund or asset participating in the GRESB Assessments. The report starts with the Scorecard – with GRESB Score, GRESB Rating and a summary analysis of performance – and is followed by an indicator-by-indicator comparison of how you perform against your peers. It is designed to help you to identify areas of risk and opportunity and deepen your engagement with investors.

Insights you will be able to draw from the GRESB Benchmark Report

The Benchmark Report shows you:

  • The indicators where you are outperforming your peer group. You can use this information to communicate your achievements to your stakeholders.
  • Where you are underperforming your peers – again on a highly granular, indicator-by-indicator basis – so that you can make informed decisions on how to improve your performance.
  • The environmental (energy, water, carbon and waste) footprint of your portfolio in absolute terms.
  • The environmental efficiency of your portfolio via energy, carbon, water and waste intensity data and how your intensity data compares to your peers.
  • How your company/fund has performed between calendar years (including on a “like-for-like” basis for real estate portfolios)
  • The validation level that has been applied to your data on an indicator level, providing insight into how robust your data is.
  • All your trend data if you participated in previous years, enabling you to monitor how you are doing over time.
  • The constituent names of your peer group as well as scores for the two dimensions that make up the GRESB Model (Management & Policy and
  • Implementation & Measurement), if the participants in your peer group also opt to disclose.
  • The same level of in-depth information on your performance that GRESB Investor Members receive*

Ultimately, the Benchmark Report will help you to measure the effectiveness of your ESG program and inform your dialogue with investors.  You’ll be able to make more informed business decisions to mitigate ESG risks, find improvement areas and enhance long-term returns.

*Investors in non-listed companies/funds/assets must request access to your results.
