From GRESB:

The pre-release of the 2017 GRESB Real Estate Assessment and 2017 GRESB Real Estate Developer Assessment is now available on the GRESB website to help property companies and funds prepare for the 2017 reporting cycle. The 2017 Assessment has remained consistent with the 2016 version.  Only small changes have been implemented as the result of extensive engagement with the real estate industry through the GRESB Advisory Board, Benchmark Committees and the entire GRESB membership network.

In addition to keeping the Real Estate Assessment stable, GRESB has further streamlined the reporting process by enabling asset level reporting beyond the Performance Indicators section.

Participants using a data partner system will be able to complete an extended set of indicators via asset level tools. The pre-release documents include summary overviews of the changes made to the two assessments, as well as explanations for the individual decisions and the list of indicators available via APIs with our data partners.

The January pre-release does not include the Health & Well-being Module, which will be published in early March together with a Reference Guide.
