Green Rating Alliance User Forum in Amsterdam
The Green Rating Alliance is happy to invite you to the Amsterdam GRA Forum on September 25th, 2013 from 3pm – 6pm at the CBRE Global Investors offices, Schiphol Boulevard 281, G-tower, 1118 BH Schiphol, The Netherlands.
Following our successful GRA Forum last year in cooperation with GRESB in Amsterdam and earlier this year in Paris we would like to offer to you this unique opportunity to share best practices and stay up-to-date with regards to the latest developments in terms of sustainability on the real estate market. All GRA Forums are open to both its members and external guests. London and Frankfurt are on the agenda for 2013 as well.
During this informative afternoon we will introduce GRA’s Green Rating Tool and how it can benefit your organisation both from a landlord and tenant perspective.
GRESB will present their 2013 benchmark data and in particular the stakeholders statistics. This ties in with our announcement earlier this year that we are teaming up with GRESB with the aim to improve the sustainability performance of investment portfolios and the property sector at large. During the business update CBRE will focus on the new approaches of Global Corporate Social Responsibility within the real estate industry.
The afternoon will be concluded with an insight to sustainable developments in green lease contracting by NautaDutilh comprising international legal developments, practical implementation and judges’ ruling.
