Amsterdam, March 16, 2023: GRESB and the Global Infrastructure Hub (GI Hub) are pleased to announce the release of “Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors in infrastructure,” an ESG-focused supplement to the previously released Infrastructure Monitor, GI Hub’s flagship publication on the state of investment in infrastructure.
Leveraging GRESB data, the supplement analyzes ESG factors across the infrastructure sector, sharing key findings on the state of play for ESG in infrastructure and the outlook for the sector. Highlights include:
- Infrastructure assets are getting better at setting up ESG policies, plans, systems and disclosure
- Among the alternative asset classes, infrastructure is the most transparent in its ESG disclosure
- Although more infrastructure assets are setting GHG emission targets, still less than half have such targets, and very few have a zero target
GRESB and GI Hub announced a strategic partnership in August 2022, formalizing an ongoing collaboration between the two organizations to engage a wider array of stakeholders, improve the quality and availability of ESG data and insights and continue building the evidence base for investing in sustainable and equitable infrastructure.
Established in 2009, GRESB is the leading ESG benchmark for real estate and infrastructure investments across the world, used by 170 institutional and financial investors to inform decision-making.
