On June 5, 2017, Prologis proudly joined forces with a broad group of governors, mayors, businesses, investors, colleges and universities from across the U.S. to support actions to protect against climate change. In an open letter to the international community, the group committed to continue to act to ensure the U.S. remains a global leader in reducing carbon emissions.
According to the letter, the Paris Agreement succeeded where past attempts failed because it allowed each country to set its own targets and define its own strategies for reaching them. The letter’s signatories commit to increasing their efforts to reduce climate change and protect the planet in the years ahead, regardless of Washington’s policies.
Those signing the letter pledged to remain actively engaged with the international community as part of the global effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy. At Prologis, we will continue to develop new facilities to global sustainability standards and upgrade existing buildings to perform more efficiently with LED lighting, cool roofs, low-water solutions and more. We will continue to work tirelessly to minimize our environmental impacts and do all that we can to ensure a better tomorrow.
