Five stars awarded to a.s.r. real estate’s residential and office funds in GRESB benchmark

a.s.r. real estate sector funds have improved their scores compared to last year

The real estate funds of a.s.r. real estate once again increased their scores in the international GRESB benchmark this year compared to last year. The ASR Dutch Mobility Office Fund and the ASR Dutch Core Residential Fund were awarded the maximum of five stars. The ASR Dutch Prime Retail Fund was awarded four stars. These results move a.s.r. real estate another step closer to its ambition of positioning all its funds in the top 20% of the sustainability benchmark.

With their five-star ratings, the residential and office funds are among the 20% best-performing GRESB funds worldwide. Through its commitment to BREEAM certification, reduced energy and water consumption and comprehensive insight into consumer data, the ASR Dutch Mobility Office Fund obtained as many as eight points more than last year, resulting in a score of 92 points out of 100. The ASR Dutch Core Residential Fund obtained 88 points, four more than in 2020. This was due particularly to an improvement in tenant engagement and the energy performance of the portfolio. 

We’re on track to be among the most sustainable funds in the world and the scores we obtained are proof of this.

The retail fund also increased its score substantially this year. The ASR Dutch Prime Retail Fund increased its score by five points, obtaining a total of 83 points. The fund achieved a major improvement thanks to BREEAM certification and improved insight into energy performance.

Dick Gort, CEO of a.s.r. real estate: “We’re proud of the results our funds have achieved. We’re on track to be among the most sustainable funds in the world and the scores we obtained are proof of this. We will remain actively committed to increased sustainability in the years ahead, in accordance with our Paris Proof Roadmaps.”
