Smartvatten has joined the GRESB Partner Program as a Premier Partner, which includes a Data Partnership. The partnership commenced mid-May and solidifies the course Smartvatten has pursued from the beginning: to become a leading player in water efficiency services, and one that’s here to stay.
The GRESB organization provides a standardized and validated way to determine the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance of real estate and infrastructure and shares that data with the capital markets. It is the leading ESG benchmark for real estate and infrastructure investments around the world. And it actively recognizes the importance of responsible use of water.
“Partnering up with GRESB was the logical choice for Smartvatten,” says Tim Twisk, Global Key Account Manager at Smartvatten. “We share the same goals, and our partnership has made that official. We’re very proud to be a GRESB Premier Partner.”
An organization like GRESB is able to systematically chart and evaluate ESG performance at the portfolio level. “And when you really want to move forward with sustainability in real estate, you need that centralized insight,” Twisk says. “Implementing sustainable measures on an ad hoc basis is great, but you’re not able to see the bigger picture. You want to be able to see how efficient your performance is, what the effects are of your efforts and how you’re developing.”
As a Data Partner, Smartvatten is able to directly share data, via an API connection, on behalf of their customers with GRESB. No need for manual input, extra portals or integrations, it all happens automatically and without any fuss. And, unlike for some portals, the data does not need to be simplified: Smartvatten’s highly detailed by-the-minute data can be directly transmitted and processed.
For their GRESB certifications, Smartvatten customers are guaranteed at least 4.66 points out of 100 in the category Water Performance in the annual GRESB Assessment. See the table below for more information, or contact Smartvatten directly to learn more about what this can mean for you.
