TH Real Estate achieves 10 Green Stars in the Global Benchmark for Sustainability in Real Estate

News

The Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) 2016 has awarded TH Real Estate 10 Green Stars for its European and US Funds, up from eight last year. Additionally two funds, the UK Retail Warehouse Fund and the Henderson UK Property PAIF were ranked first in their peer group, with the Shopping Centre Fund ranked second in its peer group.

The GRESB results recognised TH Real Estate’s funds for demonstrating global leadership in embedding sustainability throughout the property investment lifecycle.

GRESB is an industry-driven organization committed to assessing the sustainability performance of real assets around the globe, including real estate portfolios (public, private and direct). On behalf of close to 60 institutional investors, GRESB has assessed almost 1,100 property companies and funds globally. It covers 759 entities, across 63 countries. The total gross asset value of companies and funds reporting to GRESB is $2.8 trillion. Investors place a high value on the GRESB performance of funds and many TH Real Estate investors require us to participate in GRESB.

The 14 funds that participated in the survey represent $27 billion* of assets under management.

Abigail Dean, Head of Sustainability, TH Real Estate, comments: 'We are deeply committed to sustainability and this recognition demonstrates the work we have done over the last few years to integrate it into the fabric of our organisation. To have three of our funds ranked as the top one or two in their peer groups demonstrates our role as an industry leader and our commitment to keeping sustainability and responsible property investment at the heart of our business.'
