NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Paramount Group, Inc. (NYSE: PGRE) (“Paramount” or the “Company”) announced today that it achieved a 5 Star rating in the 2023 GRESB Real Estate Assessment. Maintaining the highest GRESB rating for the fifth consecutive year is an impressive feat, especially given that survey participation increased in 2023 by 15% to include 2,084 listed and non-listed portfolios across 75 countries. Paramount was a top performer within both the Management and Performance scoring categories from the GRESB module.
“We are proud of the company’s 2023 results, as we outperformed the GRESB peer score by 6% and the GRESB average score by 18%,” said Wilbur Paes, Paramount’s Chief Operating Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and Treasurer. “Our efforts to continue to raise the bar and our commitment to ESG is once again validated by our GRESB performance, and we will continue to explore opportunities to improve year after year.”
Paramount also achieved the highest Public Disclosure level of an “A,” surpassing the GRESB global average score of a “B.” This secondary rating issued by GRESB measures how effectively an organization engages its stakeholders and publishes material ESG disclosures. The objective of this rating is to enhance transparency so that investment decisions are backed by high-quality data, an area where Paramount excels.
