Prologis Wins Praise from World Economic Forum for Sustainability
San Francisco-based Prologis, Inc. a 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 recently-concluded 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 an international 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 Logistics Management – a sister publication – 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.
