GRESB Real Estate Assessment
The private real estate sector is an important partner in efforts to create health-promoting communities. Real estate investors and companies are increasingly interested in understanding their ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) performance driven by the belief that demonstrating corporate social responsibility for issues like environmental sustainability positively impacts the bottom line.
Due to the work of RWJF-funded researchers from the University of Virginia School of Medicine and the U.S. Green Building Council, health and well-being are becoming integral parts of the GRESB Real Estate Assessment, an annual ESG benchmark used by over 100 institutional investors.
The 2019 GRESB Real Estate Assessment provides a new level of transparency around the approach to health and well-being taken by the 1005 global real estate companies, REITS, funds and developers that participated, covering more than 100,000 individual real estate assets and representing USD 4.1 trillion AUM (assets under management).

Health and well-being indicators in the 2019 GRESB Real Estate Assessment are supported by the successful GRESB Health and Well-being Module, a voluntary health assessment that accompanied the GRESB Real Estate Assessment from 2016-2018. A new report from the Green Health Partnership utilizes findings from three years of data gathered by the GRESB Health & Well-being Module to analyze current market trends and provide real estate companies and investors with guidance on how to increase consideration of health and well-being within their approach to ESG.
