Following on from previous years, UBS Asset Management, Real Estate & Private Markets’ (REPM) sustainability efforts continue to be recognized by the industry, with strong and improved results in the 2022 GRESB Real Estate and Infrastructure Assessments.

This year, we submitted 23 strategies to the Assessments (4 of which were non-discretionary), comprising all of our flagship strategies and representing approximately 96% of our direct pooled real estate and infrastructure strategies globally. Compared to the previous year, global participation in the 2022 GRESB Assessments grew by 17% to 2,638 real estate and infrastructure entities raising the GRESB ESG benchmark.

Notwithstanding this, REPM’s results are a testament to its commitment to sustainability despite the increasing competition in these Assessments. 100% of the 19 discretionary strategies received either 4-stars or 5-stars.
