INREV professional standards enable consistency, allow peer-to-peer comparisons and promote market transparency. We are focused on creating an entirely transparent, competitive, efficient and sustainable industry by setting the benchmark for corporate governance, sustainability, accounting and reporting.

As part of INREV’s efforts to align the non-listed real estate industry globally, INREV, ANREV, NCREIF and PREA are working together to create global standards to align the three regions of Europe, North America and Asia Pacific. The Global Definitions Database (GGD) is a common glossary of non-listed real estate terms, aligning the INREV Guidelines (Europe) with NCREIF PREA Reporting Standards (US) and ANREV definitions. 

INREV Guidelines
The INREV Guidelines set the standard for the non-listed real estate industry in Europe and Asia Pacific. They are divided into 8 modules covering best practice for investor reporting, corporate governance structures, valuation, liquidity and more.

Several key tools that support the use of the INREV Guidelines include: Due Diligence Questionnaire (DDQ), Standard Data Delivery Sheet (SDDS), Assessments, and the Global Definitions Database (GGD).

The Assessments allow fund managers to self-assess their vehicles’ compliance with 6 of the INREV Guidelines’ 8 modules. Vehicles receive a score which can be shared with investors and used for peer-to-peer comparison.

INREV Sustainability Best Practice Guidelines for sustainability reporting include industry crossover between GRESB, GRI, EPRA and INREV.

The INREV Sustainability Library is an interactive library including reports and case studies from our members that illustrate best practice worldwide.
