Understanding GRESB Reporting

Reporting can be a tedious process. You have to know and understand exactly what the GRESB Assessment is looking for to accurately map out your data points. As a GRESB Global Partner, Measurabl speaks that language for our customers. That’s why our average customer sees a 10-point increase when disclosing with Measurabl. 

Everything You Need To Know About GRESB

GRESB (formerly the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark) is the global standard for portfolio-level ESG reporting in the real estate sector.  GRESB’s goal is straightforward – to help real estate investors assess the ESG (environmental, social, governance) performance of their commercial real estate portfolios. Participating companies and funds annually provide data on everything from energy consumption to their diversity & inclusion practices and standards of governance. The result is a benchmark of ESG performance that will help drive efficiency and improvements. GRESB assessed more than 1,500 real estate entities representing $5.7 trillion in gross assets under management (AUM) around the world in 2021. And over 100 investors – many of the world’s largest pension funds and investment managers – use GRESB data and analytics in their business decisions, showing the value they see in this benchmark.


In 2021, property companies, real estate investment trusts (REITs), asset funds, and developers participated in the Real Estate Assessment. GRESB covers nearly 117,000 assets across 69 countries.









The Benefits of GRESB Reporting

ESG Disclosures

Keep in mind: ESG reporting is here to stay. Investor demands have exponentially increased in recent years. Here are some resources on the implications of these growing investor pressures for ESG disclosure:

  • A Harvard Business Review survey interviewed executives from 43 global institutional investing firms and “found that ESG was almost universally top of mind for these executives.” 
  • BlackRock CEO Larry Fink accelerated this buzz in his annual letter that demanded corporate action on climate change, “A Fundamental Reshaping of Finance”.
  • pWc’s resources on the gap between what investors want and what companies currently provide.




S&P Global’s take on ways ESG goes beyond the balance sheet to impact stakeholder demands, corporate priorities, and increased transparency around corporate governance.
