Global Real Estate: 2022 GRESB results

This year, Credit Suisse Asset Management’s direct real estate investment products have once again scored well in the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark.

October 18, 2022

Over the course of their lifecycles, real-estate properties are responsible for a significant portion of global greenhouse gas emissions. As part of a comprehensive ESG1 concept, Global Real Estate actively reduces the carbon footprint of its investments through a number of forward-looking programs and initiatives.

As in recent years, Credit Suisse Asset Management once again participated in the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) this year with all 13 of its core and core+ real estate investment vehicles totaling roughly CHF 37 bn. Of these 13 vehicles, 10 exceeded the benchmark.

Global Real Estate has been committed to the topic of sustainability in real estate for many years now, launching the greenproperty quality seal – Switzerland’s first comprehensive sustainability label – in 2009. Together with Siemens Switzerland, Global Real Estate has also led the EC/BO program (energy controlling/operational optimization) to optimize property usage and emissions since 2014. Moreover, this year, Global Real Estate will be participating in REIDA’s newly launched Swiss benchmark. The REIDA benchmark is focused on the criteria exhibited by particularly high-quality materials, which have the greatest impact in terms of sustainability: energy consumption and CO2 emissions. The goal of this new benchmark is to significantly increase transparency and comparability for Swiss real estate investment solutions.

1ESG stands for Environmental (E), Social (S) and Governance (G).
