We are excited to announce we have received a five-star GRESB rating for the third year in a row, again placing GeelongPort in the top 20 per cent of all GRESB participants globally in 2023.
GeelongPort has also maintained a score of 97 out of 100, putting the business within the top 70 GRESB reporting companies worldwide.
GRESB, previously known as the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark, provides systematic reporting, objective scoring and peer benchmarking of ESG management and performance of infrastructure assets around the world.
Established in 2009, GRESB has become the leading ESG benchmark for real estate and infrastructure assets, used to better understand the opportunities, risks and choices that need to be made as the industry transitions to a more sustainable future.
Participating entities are given a GRESB Rating each year based on how they score on the ESG issues most material to their business. If an entity’s GRESB score is placed in the top quintile of its sector, it is recognised as a GRESB five-star rated entity. Each year, only 20 per cent of entities receive a GRESB five-star rating.
