– – – GRESB SECTOR LEADER AWARDS – – –
The GRESB Sector Leader Awards recognize the best performers annually from across the GRESB Assessments. Achieving sector leader status is clear recognition of best practice ESG performance.
Sector Leaders are determined for each region (Regional Sector Leaders) and globally (Global Sector Leaders), taking nature of ownership into account. It is possible for the same entity to be recognized as both a Regional Sector Leader and a Global Sector Leader, as follows:
- Overall Global Sector Leader (Achieved highest score for its sector)
- Global Sector Leader (Achieved highest score for the combination of nature of ownership and sector)
- Overall Regional Sector Leader (Achieved highest score for the combination of region and sector)
- Regional Sector Leader (Achieved highest score for the combination of nature of ownership, region and sector)
Within each region, we need a minimum of 6 listed and 6 unlisted entities in order to assign Sector Leaders (as described in the table below). If we do not have 6 entities within each sector, we disregard the legal status. If fewer than 6 entities remain within a sector, we do not assign a Sector Leader for that region.

Infrastructure Fund Sector Leaders are determined based on sector and geography.
Each category must have at least 6 entities and each fund must be included in at least one category. If this is not the case we will not assign a Sector Leader for the category.
Infrastructure Asset Sector Leaders are determined based on Asset Sectors. The eligible sectors are defined in our Asset Assessment (see Appendix 3 of the Reference Guide). Sector leader awards are available at the Super-Class level and the Class level.
If there are at least 12 entities at the Class level then the Sector Leader will be awarded at that level. Otherwise, if there are at least 6 entities at the (higher) Super-Class level then the Sector Leader will be awarded at that level. Each asset must be included in at least one category.
