DTZ Investors continue strong GRESB performance

DTZ Investors has achieved recognition of its sustainable practices in the 2017 Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) survey, improving on average by 16% across the 7 funds that participate and achieving Green Star status for the two largest portfolios. GRESB is an investor-driven organisation committed to assessing the environmental, social and governance performance of real estate globally. Our portfolios have seen improvements across both Management and Implementation sections, excelling with all participating funds achieving maximum scores in the Management aspect of the benchmark, 12 points ahead of the global average. This success builds on our A rating score in the 2017 United Nations PRI assessment.

Chris Cooper, DTZ Investors CEO, commented “DTZ Investors integrates sustainability holistically throughout our investment management practices, policies and operations, led by our RPI policy programme. We are proud to be recognised through both the GRESB and UNPRI indices in 2017, and these excellent results demonstrate our continued commitment to creating long-term value and embedding sustainable practices throughout our property lifecycle.”
