Resilience Certification

The only global solution for evaluating and certifying operational risk and resilience for individual assets and property portfolios.

 SAFE Asset Group is the global certification partner and custodian of SHORE (Safe Hospitality, Offices, Retail, and Exhibition assets).

SHORE is the world’s only independent and internationally acknowledged certification system for operational risk, resilience, and governance of real estate assets and operations.

SHORE systematically evaluates and benchmarks asset performance across six core areas. These core areas are engineered to offer a comprehensive, 360-degree appraisal of the asset.

SHORE is available for single assets or portfolios of properties where people work, meet, shop, and stay – and for the companies that manage them.


Corporate certification

Corporate Resilience and Governance
A strategic assessment including review of the corporate framework, its practical implementation at individual assets, and interviews with selected stakeholders.
It validates your corporate governance and is the ultimate proof of transparency and duty of care for responsible asset owners.

Asset certifications

The SHORE Certification for individual assets is available in three different levels:

SHORE Certified
A time-efficient assessment focusing on framework and management systems
The certification includes document review and scenario-based interviews, giving you a baseline and a good understanding of the fundament of asset operation.

SHORE Gold/Platinum
An in-depth assessment for premium assets including on-site visit, in-depth interviews with management,  practical testing of life safety systems, tenant visits, supplier review and asset walk through.
The certification gives you a holistic and unbiased view of all components contributing to the assets’ resilience.
