In 2022, Baltic Horizon participated in the GRESB assessment for the fourth time. We achieved a 4-star rating, thereby exceeding our goal to reach 3-stars, which was a great achievement by the entire team. We are proud to keep our 4 stars rating this year. We use the assessment to measure our progress against our peers in the industry. We remain committed to continuously improving our ESG performance, and we hope to improve the rating next year, comments Tarmo Karotam, Fund Manager for Baltic Horizon Fund.
In the assessment, the fund achieved a total score of 82 of out a possible 100, representing the third highest GRESB score in the ‘Northern Europe | Diversified – Office/Retail | Listed’ peer group.
