Sustainability

Over the last four decades, Prologis has embedded environmental stewardship, social responsibility and governance (ESG) practices across our business. Through our focus on sustainable buildings and investments into industry-leading innovation and technology, we support our customers, communities, employees and shareholders while addressing many of the world’s most pressing challenges.

The Prologis Approach to ESG

At Prologis, we’re building a sustainable future today. Our ESG efforts create value for our business by driving innovation, deepening relationships, reducing our capital costs, expanding customer offerings and strengthening our position as an employer of choice.

We maximize our impact by focusing on four strategic approaches:

Business Integration
  • ESG informs our decision-making from the boardroom to all corners of our global operations. Our commitment to ESG is strengthened further by alignment with the Prologis 3Cs, the company’s strategic blueprint for driving success across the organization: Customer Centricity; Change Through Innovation and Operational Excellence; and Culture and Talent.
Customer-Focused Solutions
  • We are ideally positioned to partner with our customers to enhance their sustainability performance, efficiently and cost-effectively.
Innovation
  • ESG challenges offer an enormous opportunity for new solutions because the world needs creative ideas to accelerate progress toward a sustainable future. Our scale and reach allow us to dedicate resources toward developing and scaling the next breakthrough.
Culture and Talent
  • Our success depends on our people. To attract and retain the top talent we are focused on delivering a world-class employee experience by establishing an inclusive culture and supporting the health and well-being of our workforce.
