GRESB Results are used by investors, representing over USD 17 trillion in institutional capital, to engage with investment managers with the aim to improve the ESG performance of their investment portfolios. GRESB data provides insights into how ESG-related risks are managed, so that investors can make better informed decisions on the allocation of their capital. With growing numbers of stock exchanges across the world introducing sustainability reporting standards, the demand for transparency on ESG performance is only set to further increase.
Starting September 13, 2017, GRESB will release the first of a series of Global and Regional Snapshots with aggregated data at results events in Sydney and London (fully booked). Additional Regional Snapshots will be published through September and October at results events taking place around the globe including in New York, Toronto, Singapore, Hong Kong, Chicago, Paris, Hamburg and Tokyo.
