What is GRESB Public Disclosure?
GRESB Public Disclosure offers investors a unique tool to measure material sustainability disclosures by listed infrastructure companies. The data is collected for all 140 companies in the GLIO Global Coverage Index.
The evaluation is based on a set of indicators aligned with the GRESB Infrastructure Assessment, allowing for a comparison of ESG disclosure performance between GRESB participants and non-participants. It also provides investors with a resource hub to access ESG disclosure documents across their listed investment portfolio.
- Disclosure of sustainability governance
- Disclosure of sustainability implementation
- Disclosure of operational performance data
- Disclosure of stakeholder engagement practices
How is GRESB Public Disclosure data collected?
The GRESB team collects ESG disclosure data from publicly available sources and adds this to the online GRESB Portal. The data is open for review from 1st April through 1st July each year, in parallel to the GRESB Infrastructure Assessment reporting period.
During this period, listed companies have the opportunity to review and amend the public disclosure data collected by GRESB. All updated data is then included in GRESB’s validation process.
The steps to follow to update your GRESB Infrastructure Public Disclosure Data are set out in the Reference Guide
How is GRESB Public Disclosure different from the Infrastructure Assessment?
The GRESB Infrastructure Assessment evaluates a wider set of ESG indicators in addition to those covered in GRESB Public Disclosure.
The reported data is validated, scored and benchmarked, resulting in an in-depth analysis of the sustainability performance of companies and funds, in both absolute terms and relative to peers.
How is GRESB Public Disclosure data scored?
The Public Disclosure information includes 22 industry-specific indicators. Each indicator is awarded zero or full points, depending on the availability of evidence. Combined, these indicators add up to a maximum of 100 points. Constituents receive a GRESB Public Disclosure Scorecard with their Disclosure Level, from A to E.
GRESB places an entity’s Public Disclosure Level into context by assigning it to a comparison group based on country/region, sector and market value.
