Join the GRESB Partner Program
Partner with the global ESG benchmark to gain visibility and access to our expanding network of asset managers and investors.
Through the GRESB Partner Program, talented sustainability advisors and software solution providers work with fund managers, companies and asset operators who participate in GRESB Assessments. Partners help them collect, report and manage their ESG data as well as complete the GRESB Assessments and improve their overall sustainability performance. Asset managers use the GRESB Assessments and related benchmarks to engage with investors, measure and manage their ESG performance and prepare for climate-related financial risks.
GRESB works with the leading national, regional and global industry bodies and associations working in real estate and infrastructure sectors. These Industry Partners collaborate with us to improve sustainability best practices in real assets.
