New Toolkit Offers Real Asset Insights

GRESB, a provider of ESG data and benchmarks, is launching a suite of tools for investors designed to shed light on the sustainability, resilience and efficiency of real assets. REAL Solutions will use aggregated asset-level data from GRESB’s annual real estate assessment to provide information on targets, operational performance, building certifications, energy ratings and efficiency measures to help asset owners and managers understand and improve asset performance. Due for release in April, the first tool – REAL Benchmarks – will provide managers and listed companies with a customisable dashboard to analyse the contribution of each individual asset to portfolio performance. It will allow users to compare portfolio assets against performance benchmarks derived from the GRESB database. Another product in the new range, REAL Statistics, will provide financial institutions with a global dataset covering energy and greenhouse gas emissions intensity values and trends. Once launched, it will provide aggregated asset-level ESG data points organised into 11,000 unique combinations of property type, electricity grid, location and climate zone. Users will be able to select from a range of performance indicators, including average, median and key thresholds – such as the top 15% of assets. “REAL Solutions represents a decade-long commitment to understanding, measuring and benchmarking the real-world performance of investor-owned assets worldwide,” said Roxana Isaiu, Chief Product Officer at GRESB.

The practical information hub for asset owners looking to invest successfully and sustainably for the long term. As best practice evolves, we will share the news, insights and data to guide asset owners on their individual journey to ESG integration.
