Measurabl, the startup for sustainability data and reporting, saw its users dominate the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark’s (GRESB) 2015 Survey scores released this week. Over 73% of Measurabl users were awarded Green Stars for outstanding GRESB performance. GRESB is the global standard for portfolio-level sustainability assessment in the real estate sector, with 707 participants representing 61,000 assets worth a combined USD $2.3 trillion. Measurabl creates GRESB reports from actual building meter- and asset-level data, allowing users and their investors enhanced results and accuracy — relative to other reporters.
Since Measurabl’s founding in 2013, each company using its sustainability automation software has gone on to substantially improve their overall sustainability performance.
Clarion Partners, the $32 billion real estate asset manager and Measurabl user since 2013, won GRESB’s coveted Sector Leader award for the top performing fund in its class as well as two Green Stars for outstanding performance in 2015. USAA Real Estate Company, the real estate asset management arm of insurance behemoth USAA, has been a Measurabl user since 2014 and won GRESB’s Sector Leader award for its Government Building Fund and a record 13th straight US EPA ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award, both in 2015. CBRE Global Investors – Strategic Partners, the discretionary asset management fund wholly owned by CBRE Inc., the world’s largest real estate services company, also won a Green Star. USAA Real Estate Company, Clarion Partners and CBRE Global Investors – Strategic Partners use Measurabl for utility data automation and sustainability reporting.
