Atlante Gestion is proud to announce its obtention of a 129/149 scoring after its submission to the GRESB reporting this year, which testifies to its involvement in CSR topics.
The international comparator of ESG performance for real assets
Created in 2009, the GRESB – Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark – is a private environmental labeling organization specifically dedicated to the real estate asset sector.
This certificate is based on a comprehensive assessment of the ESG strategy implemented at the Fund and its Management Company levels: commitments, investment analysis and monitoring methodology, dedicated team, reporting.
A reference Certificate for Alante’s France Infrastructures Fund
In May 2021, Atlante Gestion undertook a labeling process for its Infrastructure Fund, Atlante Infra Lux. Due to the nature of the underlying assets in the field of social infrastructure, the Fund is part of a real approach to sustainable development. In particular, project companies take on obligations concerning the control of their energy consumption and the jobs given to the most vulnerable people.
In order to constantly strengthen its ESG commitments, the GRESB is an additional measure to monitor the environmental and societal dimension of Atlante’s projects.
