The Global Scientific & Investor Committee (GSIC), formerly called European Investor Committee (EIC) operates as an advisory board to the CRREM project partners, comprising senior executives and key decision makers from across the European real estate industry. All GSIC members are pioneers in addressing sustainability and climate risk within their companies and bring considered industry based expertise to the CRREM project. The membership structure encompasses a diverse range of subject relevant expertise including social responsibility, sustainability consulting, building regulation and compliance as well as climate risk research.
The GSIC membership provide valuable input into the design and development of a software tool to support the decarbonisation of the real estate industry as well as adding to the robustness and credibility of the project outputs. Moreover, GSIC members serve as independent expert reviewers of the CRREM project - challenging results and outcomes to ensure market acceptance and credibility - as well as contributing to the dissemination of project findings and outcomes. The GSIC helps to ensure that the CRREM tool fulfils industry needs by ensuring contextual relevancy and alignment to industry expectations. To achieve this, the EIC members will engage in project meetings in order to share specialised technical expertise throughout the design and development process and promote the use of the tool within industry during the testing and validation phase.
The GSIC consists of the following members:
Global Head of ESG
Head of Asset Management Germany
Managing Director, Head of Fund Management
