What is GRESB Public Disclosure?
GRESB Public Disclosure is a unique tool for investors to measure the material sustainability disclosures of listed property companies, REITs, and infrastructure companies. Data is collected from more than 850 listed real estate companies and REITs listed in major real estate indices as well as from 150 listed infrastructure companies.
The evaluation is based on a relatively narrow set of ESG indicators that are aligned with the more comprehensive GRESB Real Estate Assessment and GRESB Infrastructure Assessments. While different in scope, the related focus of GRESB Public Disclosure allows investors to compare the ESG disclosure performance between GRESB participants and non-participants. It also provides investors with a resource hub to access ESG disclosure documents across their full investment portfolio.
- Disclosure of sustainability governance
- Disclosure of sustainability implementation
- Disclosure of operational performance data
- Disclosure of stakeholder engagement practices
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.
GRESB Public Disclosure Levels
The Public Disclosure information includes 22 industry-specific indicators, each of which is awarded zero or full points, depending on the availability of evidence found or provided by listed companies.
Combined, these indicators add up to a maximum of 100 points for real estate and 70 points for infrastructure. Evaluated companies receive a GRESB Public Disclosure Scorecard with their Disclosure Level ranging from A to E.
Each company’s Public Disclosure Level is put into context by assigning it to a comparison group based on country and region as well as sector and market value. GRESB Investor Members have access to the Public Disclosure Levels and supporting information for all entities.
How GRESB collects data for Public Disclosure
Each year, the GRESB team collects ESG disclosure data for newly listed organizations from publicly available sources, adding it to the online GRESB Portal. Organizations covered by Public Disclosure can review and amend the public disclosure data collected by GRESB from April 1 through July 1, in parallel with the GRESB reporting period.
All data – collected by GRESB and amended by organizations themselves – are subject to GRESB’s validation process. Once added to Public Disclosure, companies are responsible for checking and updating their data.
