GRESB awards five-star ratings to a.s.r. real estate’s retail, residential and office funds

Science Park Fund rises from two to four stars and is global leader in the Technology/Science category

This year a.s.r. real estate’s retail, residential and office funds all received a perfect five-star rating in the GRESB benchmark. This means that the funds are among the 20% most sustainable GRESB funds in the world. All funds scored well above the GRESB average of 74 points and above their peer group average. Improved individual ESG performance targets; more extensive provision of data on energy, GHG, waste and water usage; and more comprehensive BREEAM certification contributed to this maximum score. The Science Park Fund received four stars and was named Global Non-listed Sector Leader in the Technology/Science category.

Scoring 10 points higher than last year, the ASR Dutch Prime Retail Fund achieved 93 points and ranked second in its peer group. The ASR Dutch Mobility Office Fund was assigned to a new peer group, Western Europe Office Corporate Core, in which it ranked fourth out of 27 funds. As its entire portfolio achieved BREEAM certification in 2021, the ASR Dutch Core Residential Fund also gained two additional points. The ASR Dutch Science Park Fund improved its rating from two to four stars (from 73 to 87 points), making it world leader in its Technology/Science peer group.
