GRESB, THE GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL AND GOVERNANCE (ESG) BENCHMARK FOR REAL ASSETS, HAS RELEASED THE RESULTS FOR THE 2020 GRESB INFRASTRUCTURE ASSESSMENT.

Ventient Energy has been named the Sector Leader in 2020 Infrastructure Asset Assessment, which welcomed 426 assets and 1,354 facilities. The Assessment covers 32 of the 33 industry sectors across 59 countries.

This year Ventient Energy is recognized Asset Sector Leader within Wind Power Generation as well as Overall Asset Sector Leader within Renewable Power.

Each year GRESB assesses and benchmarks the ESG performance of real assets worldwide. The GRESB Assessments are guided by what investors and the industry consider to be material issues in the sustainability performance of real asset investments and are aligned with international reporting frameworks, goals and emerging regulations.

The 2020 ESG benchmark covers more than US $5.3 trillion AuM (2019: 4.5 trillion), giving clarity and direction to the real asset investment market as a means to address complex sustainability challenges. GRESB data is used by hundreds of capital providers and thousands of asset managers to benchmark investments across portfolios and understand the opportunities, risks and choices that need to be made as the industry transitions to a more sustainable future.

“We are proud to recognize the 2020 GRESB “Sector Leaders” and “Most Improved” for their clear commitment and meaningful action to improve their ESG performance. Your efforts continue to shape the future of sustainability leadership and play a critical role in driving the transition towards sustainable real assets.” – Sander Paul van Tongeren, Co-Founder and Managing Director at GRESB on Sector Leaders and Most Improved.

The GRESB Sector Leader Awards Program recognizes real estate and infrastructure companies, funds and assets that have demonstrated outstanding leadership in sustainability.
