BREEAM® Certified Buildings

Founded in 1990, Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) was the world’s first process to assess building sustainability. BREEAM addresses and assesses multiple lifecycle stages, including new construction, refurbishment and in-use. BREEAM is the world's leading sustainability assessment standard for buildings, master-planned projects and infrastructure.

Conceived as a cost-effective means to bring sustainable value to development, BREEAM helps investors, developers, design and construction teams, and occupiers make more efficient use of natural resources. BREEAM assesses the procurement, design, construction and operation of a development project against performance-based target benchmarks. BREEAM measures sustainable value in a number of categories, ranging from energy to ecology. Each assessed category addresses a range of factors, including design impact and carbon emissions, design durability and resilience, adaption to climate change, and ecological value and biodiversity protection. Within each category, developments earn points for meeting and exceeding benchmark targets. A project’s summed total determines its overall rating. Independent, licensed assessors conduct BREEAM assessments. They rate and certify developments on a scale of “Pass,” “Good,” “Very Good,” “Excellent” and “Outstanding.”

Prologis strives to lead the industry in sustainable development with buildings designed to minimize waste, as well as energy and water use. Since 2006, Prologis has built more than 50 BREEAM-accredited warehouses. In January of 2016, we achieved final-stage BREEAM 2014 “Outstanding” accreditation for DC2, our 360,000 square foot distribution center at Prologis Park Dunstable—the first industrial building to achieve an “Outstanding” rating under BREEAM’s more stringent 2014 guidelines.
