Denver, United States
Jeannie Renné-Malone is Prologis’ vice president for ESG (Environmental Stewardship, Social Responsibility and Governance).
Jeannie joined Prologis five years ago as vice president and global head of our Sustainability group, bringing with her extensive experience in sustainability, stakeholder engagement, life cycle assessment modeling and facilitating corporate and nonprofit interactions on environmental initiatives.
She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish language and literature from the University of Washington and a Master of Arts in international finance and development from the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies. In addition, she is LEED AP credentialed and has an ENV SP (Envision Sustainability Professional) credential from the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure. She was named to the 2018 Environmental Leader 75 list by the Environment and Energy Leaders Institute and named an Industrial Influencer by the GlobeSt.com Real Estate Forum in 2019. She is a board member of the Mile High Chapter of the American Red Cross and a Climate Reality Leader for The Climate Reality Project.
Upon joining Prologis, Jeannie hit the ground running, leading the effort to advance the company’s sustainability programs across the globe. Last year, upon the restructuring of the Sustainability program under the new umbrella title of ESG, Jeannie’s group dove in even deeper in its collaborative efforts to tie all sustainability efforts to the company’s business strategy.
“There are a myriad of opportunities that arise from Prologis’ scale, and the ESG team is laser-focused on staying ahead of customer needs and linking the ESG program to our business initiatives,” Jeannie explains.
Jeannie led the effort to ensure Prologis was the first logistics real estate company with a WELL-certified warehouse and also the first logistics company to set science-based targets. She has been an integral part of our Community Workforce Initiative (CWI), partnering with community organizations to provide training, skills development and job placement with an aim to help our customers build a talent pipeline in the booming logistics field.
The ESG team’s unwavering dedication has resulted in numerous achievements and recognitions, including being named the top U.S. company and #6 overall on the Corporate Knights Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World list.
Jeannie and the ESG team continue to evolve Prologis’ vision around ESG, working closely with colleagues around the world and tapping into the company’s scale, innovation and global presence to address critical environmental and social issues.
Jeannie’s colleagues view her as a consensus builder dedicated to promoting ESG throughout the organization, and someone who has had a truly meaningful and positive impact on Prologis’ corporate culture.
“ESG touches all of our teams in one way or another, and is deeply engrained in our culture,” Jeannie says. “My goal is to collaborate across teams and geographies to understand my colleagues’ individual roles, how they contribute to our ESG program, and work together to advance our business strategy. I love that my job is so meaningful and impactful!”
