GRESB on Sept. 2 released its 2015 report on sustainability in real estate around the world, and results showed global declines in greenhouse gas emissions and greater use of sustainable energy.

The report is based on data from more than 700 real estate companies and investment funds. The number of survey participants in ‘15 grew by 11 percent from 2014.

“The 2015 GRESB Report and data show that the global property industry is taking sustainability issues seriously, making them a core part of business strategies,” said Chris Pyke, GRESB’s chief operating officer.
