Ventient Energy has been given a five-star rating and attained ‘Sector Lead’ status from the international organisation that assesses and benchmarks the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance of real assets.
GRESB was launched in 2009 by a group of large pension funds who wanted to have access to comparable and reliable data on the ESG performance of their investments and the organisation’s data and benchmarks now cover real estate and infrastructure assets with a value in excess of USD 4.5 trillion.
“We’re delighted to have maintained our five-star status in the annual GRESB survey,” said CEO, Mark Jones, “especially considering the enhanced marking standards and increased numbers of participants during the 2018 reporting period.”
“Ventient Energy sustained a high profile within the GRESB reporting process ensuring we lead the companies within the IIF portfolio,” he added.
Note: The 2019 real estate benchmark covers more than 1,000 property companies, real estate investment trusts (REITs), funds, and developers. The coverage for infrastructure includes 500 infrastructure funds and assets. Combined, GRESB represents USD 4.5 trillion in real asset value. More than 100 institutional investors, with over USD 22 trillion AUM, use GRESB data to monitor their investments, engage with their managers, and make decisions that lead to a more sustainable real asset industry. www.gresb.com
