GLP Asia, a leading investor, developer, and manager of logistics real estate, has achieved Planet Mark certification.
In this Decade of Action, the group wants to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring its own impact on the environment. This year, the company will be working to reduce its emissions by 5%.
Through Planet Mark, the company has protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.
It is also helping the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future. The company looks forward to sharing its sustainability achievements with the wider community.

We are fully focused on the value of Sustainability and all that it brings to us to deliver a successful business model that is current in today’s market. By Driving Sustainability and carbon reduction in our business we are able to demonstrate to our investors, customers and shareholders that we are fully committed and pro-actively thinking about Sustainability and how we can constantly evolve this topic with ESG matters for the long-term.”
Graeme added “Planet Mark certification really formalises all our hard work and dedication from all the team at GLP annually of all the fantastic things that are being done on Sustainability. Overall, It is a great way to engage and really focus the business on sustainability and carbon reduction.”
Sustainability presents an opportunity for businesses in all industries. As well as meeting the demands of modern consumers and regulations, a measured and practical approach to sustainability provides resilience against an ever-changing world. Businesses that are able to be agile and responsive to the challenges of climate change will be better placed to thrive in the future.
The real estate industry must act on climate change. As well as being a major contributor to the world’s carbon emissions, a sustainable building can provide positives for human health, productivity and wellbeing. Cutting carbon emissions to achieve society’s climate change goals can be paired with tangible social and health benefits, providing a compelling case for better real estate.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, GLP Asia has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
