Prologis believes that strong corporate responsibility programs include both corporate level, top-down initiatives, as well as bottom-up efforts engaging employees at all levels of the organization.
To develop a true culture of corporate responsibility and give associates the opportunity to participate in our efforts, Prologis created the Corporate Responsibility Champion network. These individuals have volunteered to serve as the point-of-contact between headquarters and their office for all CR matters. Participating in quarterly conference calls with corporate CR staff provides a framework for regular communication, education, and data sharing among our offices.
One of the first Champion initiatives was the development of the Prologis Green Path. The Green Path is our internal roadmap for ensuring environmental stewardship in our operations. The Champions formed into four teams representing the major environmental impacts of our operations: energy, waste, procurement, and water. Each team developed a list of steps our offices should take in that particular area. The Green Path defines the goals toward which the entire workforce strives to enhance the company's stewardship of the environment.
