The international GRESB system assesses the sustainability of the infrastructure sector and offers us an important benchmark and research tool for the continuous development of sustainability as it provides information about the global development of sustainability in the infrastructure sector. GRESB assesses the performance of companies in environmental matters, corporate social responsibility and corporate governance.

Measurements of sustainability and performance cover e.g. the operating principles and policies of Elenia, employees, stakeholder collaboration as well as supply chains.
