GeelongPort receives global recognition with impressive five-star ESG rating

GeelongPort has been recognised globally for its ongoing commitment to ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) transparency and improved performance, receiving an impressive five-star rating in the 2021 GRESB Infrastructure Assessment.

The GRESB Assessments are guided by what investors and the industry consider to be material issues in the sustainability performance of asset investments and are aligned with international reporting frameworks, goals, and emerging regulations. GeelongPort has been rated in the top quintile for its sector in 2021.

GeelongPort CEO Brett Winter is thrilled that GeelongPort has been placed third when benchmarked against 22 other global port companies for 2021 in only the second year of GRESB participation.

“The GRESB Infrastructure Assessment provides a robust assessment tool which allows GeelongPort to benchmark its ESG progress against our peers, and it’s incredible to know we’re considered a leader in this field,” he said.

“GeelongPort takes its Environmental, Social and Governance responsibility very seriously, and we have developed strategies, policies and frameworks to support our goal of being sector leader in this area.

“I am incredibly proud of the dedicated and passionate team members we have at GeelongPort who are always looking at ways in which we can improve our ESG performance. It is their dedication that has contributed to this remarkable achievement, and we look forward to maintaining and growing our high GRESB rating in the future.”

GRESB CEO Sebastien Roussotte said it is inspiring to see such a high level of dedication from the industry.

“Across the globe, organisations are demonstrating a deep commitment to ESG integration while making important strides towards a more sustainable future for us all,” said Sebastien Roussotte, CEO of GRESB.
