Ben Bannatyne, president of Prologis Europe, said: “We care about our customers, the communities in which we work and the world around us. Our goal is to offer everyone a better future through continuous innovation and development of solutions in areas such as labour, energy saving, CO2 neutrality and smart building techniques. This is what our new sustainability report, the ESG Report 2021-2022, talks about, in which we explain our European efforts in the field of environment, social responsibility and governance (ESG). In it, we indicate how we will increase the level of our ambitions by accelerating the reduction of our emissions, in order to be completely CO2 neutral by 2040. Sustainability is woven into our business, and with Prologis Europe’s buildings and services we create both business returns and positive social impact.”
