This survey comprises a review of 106 Annual Reports from leading listed real estate companies across Europe to assess compliance with EPRA’s Best Practices Recommendations (BPR) updated in December 2014.

The EPRA Deloitte survey shows the largest year-on-year improvement of quality in financial reporting in Europe. Implementation of EPRA’s Best Practices Recommendations (BPR) is gaining momentum with 33 Gold awards granted to real estate companies against 24 last year. Some 18 companies included in the survey last year achieved a higher award this year.
