All Dutch real estate funds and portfolios managed by Achmea Real Estate have achieved the maximum rating of five stars in the leading Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB). This means they are among the best-performing funds and portfolios globally in terms of sustainability.
The average score of the seven Dutch funds and portfolios rose by 1.9 per cent to over 92 points (maximum is 100). Residential fund ADRF and healthcare real estate fund ADHCPF were even above that with 93 and 94 points, respectively. The retail fund ADRPF scored slightly below average at 89 points.
Well above average
The two portfolios in Germany also performed better than the previous year. The GRP fund received the maximum five stars for the first time and took first place in its peer group with 90 points. Globally, the average score of participating funds in GRESB rose slightly to 75 points. All Achmea Real Estate funds and portfolios scored well above this average, as in previous years.
"We get better results in the GRESB every year," says Boris van der Gijp, Director of Real Estate at Achmea Real Estate. "This shows how deeply sustainability is embedded in our DNA and that of our institutional clients. Eight top rankings with five stars: we are very proud of that. At the same time, we will do everything we can to do even better next year, for example by focusing on making the existing housing stock more sustainable."
