San Francisco-based Prologis, Inc. a leading global owner, operator and developer of industrial real estate, announced its inclusion in the 2013 “Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World” list at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. 

Recognized as the world’s most credible corporate sustainability ranking, the Global 100 consists of the 100 top-performing companies worldwide based on a range of sector-specific “sustainability” metrics. 

Prologis has a comprehensive approach to sustainability encompassing three dimensions: environmental stewardship, social responsibility and governance.

As the leading global provider of certified sustainable logistics space, Prologis owns more than 39 million square feet of facilities meeting green building standards, has completed energy efficiency improvements in over 50 percent of its global property portfolio, and has installed 83 megawatts of solar panels as part of its commitment to renewable energy.

Steve Campbell, SVP director of environmental, engineering and sustainability, told LM that he views sustainable operations as a “vital component” to long-term business success.

“We are excited to be the only U.S. based real-estate company on the Global 100 list,” he said.

Campbell added that Prologis will continue to develop, own, and operate a global portfolio of energy-efficient facilities that minimize their environmental impact.

Seasonally-adjusted (SA) for-hire truck tonnage in July headed up 1.3 percent on the heels of a 0.8 percent increase in June. The ATA’s not seasonally-adjusted (NSA) index, which represents the change in tonnage actually hauled by fleets before any seasonal adjustment, was 133.3 in July, which outpaced June’s 132.3 by 0.8 percent, and was up 2.8 percent annually.

Volumes for the month of July at the Port of Long Beach (POLB) and the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) were mixed, according to data recently issued by the ports.
