The 2021 GRESB results are out! Despite the continued challenges posed by Covid-19 we’re so proud of our GRESB team and our clients for maintaining focus to achieve excellent results.
The 2021 benchmark saw the largest ever growth in total numbers, with 1,520 entities now participating worldwide, with significant growth in Europe. This record growth is a welcome signal that the real estate and infrastructure industries are continuing to ramp up ambition and action in the transition to net zero.
Carbon Intelligence hosted the 2021 GRESB Real Estate Results for EMEA which was a great opportunity to recognise the collective industry effort to advance sustainable real assets.

- 48 x GRESB Real Estate and Infrastructure submissions
- 39 x entities (91%) maintained or improved score
- 34 x entities (79% improved scores).
- 15 x submissions achieved 4 or 5 stars – 4 x funds achieved 4 stars, 11 x funds achieved 5 stars
- 5 x submissions achieved peer group leader status
- 2 x submissions achieved sector leader status
“Across the globe, organizations are demonstrating a deep commitment to ESG integration while making important strides towards a more sustainable future for us all,” said Sebastien Roussotte, CEO of GRESB. “ESG transparency and improving overall performance have never been more important, and it is inspiring to see such a high level of dedication across industries.”
By enabling our clients to be pioneers in their industries we will see their peers and competitors look to step up their ambitions, helping drive the UK closer to hitting its 2050 target.
Congratulations again to our clients and our GRESB team on their tremendous success.
