FIBRA Prologis, a leading owner and operator of Class-A logistics real estate in Mexico, has been selected for inclusion in the newly launched Dow Jones Sustainability Index MILA Pacific Alliance (DJSI MILA). The new index comprises companies with the highest sustainability scores, as assessed by RobecoSAM, in the Pacific Alliance region (Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru). The index provides investors with a regionally targeted, sustainably-focused investment portfolio.
This was the first year FIBRA Prologis submitted a response to the DJSI survey. FIBRA Prologis’ inclusion in this index is a testament to the innovation, teamwork and commitment to sustainability of our colleagues in Mexico. The FIBRA Prologis portfolio includes 14 sustainable building certifications totaling 3.8 MSF, or 11 percent of the portfolio. 67 percent of the portfolio's buildings have energy efficient lighting. Cool roofing material which reflects sunlight and repels heat to lower indoor air temperatures covers 6.6 million square feet of the portfolio.
These future-focused features helped FIBRA Prologis rank 2nd out of 12 peers in the GRESB North America Industrial category, trailing only to Prologis. FIBRA Prologis also earned an ‘A’ in public disclosure, a component new to GRESB in 2017.
This news comes shortly after Prologis was selected for the tenth year in a row for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for North America. Nippon Prologis REIT was also named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index in Asia Pacific for the third year running.
Inclusion in these three indices recognizes our enduring commitment to sustainable business practices that benefit our customers, shareholders, employees and communities. For more information about Prologis’ sustainability initiatives, please see our 2016 Sustainability Report here.
