"At ASI we have been on a journey to ensure that we develop and manage properties that are built to last. The strong track record we now have with GRESB endorses this commitment to sustainable, social and environmental principles, which are firmly embedded in our real estate operations and investment across the business. Not only does this deliver better financial outcomes and investment performance for our clients and tenants, but also we have achieved improved environmental and social outcomes.
