ESG Analyst/Associate INREV (Real Estate)

Do you have a passion for sustainability? Are you excited about working closely with industry experts
in shaping the ESG industry guidelines and practice?

INREV – the European Association in non-listed real estate vehicles – is looking for an ESG
Analyst/Associate to support in the next development stage of ESG integration and decarbonisation
journey for the real estate industry.
This role will allow the suitable candidate to make an impact on the industry by supporting leading real
estate organisations in achieving their sustainability goals, and by gaining knowledge and experience
in different areas of institutional real estate investment.

About INREV
INREV is Europe’s leading platform for sharing knowledge on the non-listed real estate industry. Our
goal is to improve transparency, professionalism and best practice across the industry, making the
non-listed real estate investment industry more accessible and attractive to investors. We are a highly
active association and work for and with our members.

The INREV team is currently made up of 34 employees, with 31 in the Amsterdam office and 3 in the
Brussels office.

There is a strong sense of team motivation, collaboration and excitement. New team
members will be expected to share in this, contributing ideas on setting high service standards,
expanding knowledge and awareness of INREV, and increasing the association’s competitiveness.

ESG is a key priority on our strategic agenda. We believe that in order to remain successful, real
estate organisations should integrate ESG factors into their strategy, operations and investment
decision-making process while securing the path towards Net Zero.

Team
The ESG Analyst/Associate is part of INREVs Professional Standards team, which works closely
with the different experts of our members and other INREV departments, such as research and market

of institutional real estate investment (e.g. Sustainability reporting and performance, Regulations, Due
Diligence) and join a small, energetic, hands-on team of professionals.
