Date: 21 Oct 2022George Best Belfast City Airport demonstrates its continuing commitment to ESG transparency and improved performance by participating in the 2022 Infrastructure Assessment.
Each year, GRESB assesses and benchmarks the ESG performance of assets worldwide, providing clarity and insights to financial markets on complex sustainability topics.
Belfast City Airport has recorded a score of 91% in the latest assessment, up 3 percentage points on its previous result of 88% in 2021.
As a result of its positive performance in this years’ assessment, the airport also secures fourth position amongst its peer group for commitment and effort to ESG.
Ian Nuttall, Environment and Sustainability Manager at Belfast City Airport, said:
“As a responsible business leader, Belfast City Airport is committed to sustainable operations and strives to do all it can to positively impact the environment, the industry, and the economy in which it operates.
“We are thrilled that the latest GRESB Assessment recognises our significant ESG efforts to date and our position within our peer group as a good example of a responsible infrastructure asset.
“There is however always more to be done, and through ongoing investment in our operations, we pledge to continue with those aspirations moving forward.”
The GRESB Assessments are guided by what investors and the industry consider to be material issues in the sustainability performance of asset investments and are aligned with international reporting frameworks, goals and emerging regulations. The GRESB ESG Benchmark grew this year to cover more than USD 8.6 trillion of assets under management, up from USD 6.4 trillion the year before.
GRESB data is used by hundreds of capital providers and thousands of asset managers to benchmark investments across portfolios and to better understand the opportunities, risks and choices that need to be made as the industry transitions to a more sustainable future.
“With more fund managers and asset owners reporting to GRESB than ever before, we are proud to see the global real assets industry deepen its commitment to ESG transparency and pave the way for a more sustainable future,” said Sebastien Roussotte, CEO of GRESB.
