GRESB is an investor driven organisation which monitors the environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance of real estate entities globally. Members of GRESB include leading European property companies and institutional investors. IPUT participated in the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) survey in 2016 and is the first Irish entity to do so.
The best-practice structures put forward by the GRESB reporting framework have greatly assisted the shaping of our sustainability policies and strategy. This approach will ensure that we grow sustainably as we further our position as leaders in the Irish commercial real estate market. From 2017 onwards, we will use the GRESB assessment to communicate our ESG performance to our stakeholders, and to inform areas for improvement and expansion.www.gresb.com
