AMSTERDAM, November 10, 2022: GRESB, the global ESG benchmark for real estate and infrastructure investments, announced today that it has joined the Net Zero Financial Service Providers Alliance (NZFSPA) to support the transition to net zero.
Part of the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero, NZFSPA is a global group of financial service providers who commit to supporting global net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or sooner, in line with the ambition to limit global temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
“As a mission-driven organization, GRESB has always been committed to supporting efforts to create a sustainable world,” said Sebastien Roussotte, CEO of GRESB. “The Net Zero Financial Service Providers Alliance is directly aligned with GRESB’s mission, and joining this Alliance allows us to not only reconfirm that commitment, but also accelerate the provision of credible and science-based tools and standards to enable the necessary transition to net zero.”
GRESB’s participation in the NZFSPA reaffirms our commitment to sustainability by putting net zero at the core of our business and enables us to further integrate net zero action into multiple layers of GRESB influence, from our products and services to engagement with stakeholders and policy makers, internal target setting and disclosure.
