Prologis, a leading developer and owner of logistics property in the UK, have achieved Planet Mark certification.
This is its tenth year of business carbon footprint reporting. Prologis’ total carbon footprint in the year ending December 2020 was 136.1 tCO2e, and relative carbon footprint was 2.6 tCO2e per employee.
Prologis first calculated the carbon footprint of its Solihull and London office operations for the year ending December 2011 and set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually. This year’s footprint includes emissions from energy use in the building, from waste, water, business travel and hotel accommodation.
“Prologis’ results speak for themselves. After nine years with us at Planet Mark, I am pleased and inspired by the company’s ability to cut its carbon footprint so effectively. From the construction site through to the thriving communities it creates, everyone feels the benefits of sustainable property developments. The property industry is ripe for sustainable change and more companies should follow in the footsteps of Prologis.”
Prologis is committed to embedding sustainability into every aspect of its business operations: from the buildings, it creates to the way it engages with the communities close to its developments. Prologis is also a business committed to helping others start their own sustainability journeys, which is why it works with its supply chain, customers, employees and local schools to help reduce our collective impact on the world in which we live.
The construction and property sectors are major carbon emitters, with the built environment contributing to approximately 20% of the UK’s carbon footprint. From managing and retrofitting existing properties to the responsible construction of a new property, the entire industry must revolutionise to hit the world’s carbon targets. Part of this change must focus on reducing property company’s own operations and carbon emissions.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, Prologis has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
