GRESB(Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark)

The Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) is an assessment system for measuring annually the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) awareness of real estate. It was developed in 2009 by major European pension funds and others.

Characteristically, the GRESB Real Estate Assessment evaluates the initiatives on sustainability of real estate companies, REIT and funds as a whole, instead of solely investigating individual real estate properties.

For details of the GRESB, please refer to this website.

In the 2016 GRESB Real Estate Assessment, PIC was selected as "Sector Leader" (the first rank) in the diversified sector (Office/Residential) in the Asia region.

PIC was also granted “2 Stars” in the GRESB Rating (five-level rating with the highest being “5 Stars”), which represents relative assessment based on the overall GRESB scores.
