1. Even though Scope 1 and 2 is only 0.1% of our total carbon emission, we continue to seek opportunities to drive reductions. In 2020 we saw a 21% reduction compared to 2019, and we are exploring additional solutions for both mobile and stationary fuel combustion.
2. Scope 3 emissions account for 99.9% of Prologis’ total Scope 1, 2 and 3 carbon footprint.
Note: We are retiring our cool roofs goal due to methodological challenges. However, we remain committed to installing cool roofs wherever they provide energy savings, and by year-end 2020, 44% of our global portfolio had cool or reflective roofing.
