GRESB started in 2009 as a standard for assessing the sustainability performance of real estate portfolios. Their original “investor” or “equity” survey has been a runaway success and now counts more than 700 participants. In an attempt to satiate the ever expanding appetite of real estate companies and investors for more precise measures of performance, GRESB has developed two new surveys — one each for debt and infrastructure.
Here’s a comparison of all three GRESB focus areas, the differences between each survey, and how to pick the one right for you.
