GRESB launches data solutions product for real assets

20th March 2024

GRESB has launched a new suite of tools for managers and investors.

The new REAL Solutions product suite will provide actionable insights into the sustainability, resilience and efficiency of assets, the real assets ESG benchmarking firm said.

Roxana Isaiu, Chief Product Officer at GRESB said: “REAL Solutions marks a significant milestone for GRESB. It was developed in response to the evolving needs of institutional investors and managers seeking deeper insights into the sustainability of individual assets. This represents a decade-long commitment to understanding, measuring and benchmarking the real-world performance of investor-owned assets worldwide.”

The new suite of solutions is powered by GRESB’s annual real estate assessment, which measures factors such strategy, leadership, policies and processes, risk management, performance at the asset and portfolio level, and development factors, including its efforts to address ESG issues during design, construction, and renovation.

The first solution in the new suite, to be released in April, is REAL Benchmarks, an interactive dashboard for real estate fund managers, which allows them to analyse the contribution of individual assets to portfolio performance, including insights into energy use and emissions. 

The solution will enable users to compare asset performance against asset-specific GRESB benchmarks and against industry pathways, and to identify portfolio laggards. User will also be able to visualize energy and GHG performance and to filter portfolios by location, property type, and year.

The next product to be launched will be REAL Statistics, a global dataset covering energy and greenhouse gas intensity values and trends for financial institutions. When launched, REAL Statistics will provide asset-level data points organised into 11,000 combinations of property type, electricity grid, location and climate zones.
