Sustainability Champions of the Future
At Prologis, we build not only industrial logistics buildings, but also lasting relationships with local communities. From IMPACT Day, our global day of service, to initiatives inspired by the countries where we operate, Prologis employees across the globe are committed to being good neighbors.
One such initiative is in the UK where, via our association with the Planet Mark certification program, we deliver sustainability workshops in schools. Recently, our UK sustainability champions visited Hayes Meadow Primary School in Rugeley, England, with an education officer from the educational nonprofit Eden Project to conduct a workshop about biodiversity and how to protect the planet. The workshop demonstrated the importance of conservation from an environmental and fiscal angle and included exercises centered around saving money for the school and packing Barbie and Ken for a trip to the moon. See how much the children learned in this video.
Prologis was the first industrial property company in the UK to measure, reduce and mitigate the carbon emissions embodied in the structure and fabric of new buildings via Planet Mark certification. Over the past decade, we have engaged with 44 schools and colleges in the UK, including Hayes Meadow Primary School in Rugeley, which is close to Prologis Park Fradley.
Being part of the local community is a core tenet of our business philosophy and a key element in our sustainability program. Our approach to sustainable development extends beyond the buildings we create to providing environmentally friendly facilities for communities and educational projects with schools and colleges, in conjunction with such partners as Planet Mark.
