GRESB opens new office in London

GRESB, the global ESG benchmark for real estate and infrastructure investments, is excited to announce that it has opened a new office in London, United Kingdom. The latest location further expands GRESB’s regional presence, following the recent opening of a hub in Paris, France. The office will grow GRESB’s operations and better serve members in the United Kingdom and the wider EMEA region.

GRESB is headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, with regional teams on the ground to support the organization’s growing membership. This includes investors, managers, and partners in North America, Asia, and Oceania. GRESB is committed to supporting data-led ESG insights globally through its Real Estate and Infrastructure Assessments, as well as across its suite of broader ESG solutions, services, and asset-level insights.

GRESB in London

GRESB’s London office, located in the City of London at 68 King William Street, will allow GRESB to increase its support to UK-based investment managers and investors. The location is well-positioned for the London team to meet its members in person, facilitating additional engagement and assistance.

The landmark building is located at ‘the gateway to the City’, directly outside of Monument London Underground Station and the improved Bank Station entrance. This prime location provides excellent public transport connectivity and is situated in close proximity to associated regional train stations at Cannon Street and London Bridge respectively. The office space is operated by London-focused office provider Halkin.

In 2023, GRESB expanded its London-based team, bolstering its representation of the Member Relations function in the UK. These changes aim to enhance GRESB’s customer support and member engagement through dedicated resources.

A London base will improve members’ access to GRESB expertise throughout the year and reporting cycle. Additionally, it will provide an enhanced ability for GRESB to host regular in-person meetings with the dedicated GRESB account management team as well as tailored regional events.

Alex Steel, Manager, Member Relations for the UK and EMEA states that “having an office in London is key to supporting our members in such a critical market. UK-based funds represented 13 percent of the Real Estate Benchmark and 26 percent of the Infrastructure Benchmark in 2023, therefore engaging, advising, and listening to our participants in this location is crucial to driving more sustainable real estate portfolios and harvesting key insights to help evolve the Standards. We anticipate that the London office will bring about new opportunities for GRESB and our members moving forward.”

GRESB is confident that the new London office will bring added value to our members, partners, and UK-based staff. We look forward to welcoming you to our new base very soon.
