ESG, GRESB & Reporting: Unpacking Critical Information for CRE Owners and Operators

ESG, GRESB & Reporting: Unpacking Critical Information for CRE Owners and Operators

Presented by Grace Hill

 

Session Information

 

2020 and 2021 were critical years for Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) in real estate, prompting investors to evaluate and adopt a more strategic approach to sustainability propelled by a global pandemic, climate-related disruptions, and social change.

 

As this trend continues, commercial real estate owners and operators, in particular, are finding significant value in incorporating real estate strategies that encompass ESG goals. And in many cases, they are also utilizing GRESB (formerly known as the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark) reporting to maximize how they can be more transparent about ESG programs, progress, and performance.

 

We invite you to join Grace Hill’s upcoming webinar, “ESG, GRESB & Reporting: Unpacking Critical Insights for CRE Owners and Operators,” where we will take a deeper look at the impact and evolution of ESG, GRESB, and Reporting with Brenna S. Walraven, an internationally recognized leader in commercial real estate and sustainability, and John Falco, real estate thought leader with 25+ years of experience in the office, industrial, retail, and residential sectors.

 

Focus

 

During this informational webinar, owners and operators will learn about:

 

  • Marketplace changes and context for ESG focus;
  • Clearer definitions of ESG terms and acronyms;
  • Components of an effective ESG strategy;
  • Benefits of GRESB participation;
  • Engagement pathways.
