Prologis, the global leader in logistics real estate, shared its charitable impact in Europe and steadfast commitment to local communities and good causes. Europe’s most sustainable developer of industrial logistics parks, has a proud history of giving back to charities and communities. Recently, 12 of our European offices took part in a month-long ‘Dock Doors of Giving campaign’, aimed at returning much needed funds to charitable causes and community groups hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a result of this campaign, our employees and supply chain, together with the Prologis Foundation, returned over €275,000 to 91 charities across Europe, outperforming the initial target of €200,000. Donations ranged from financial contributions to food, toys and other items, including hand sanitiser and much needed PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), to food banks and community groups struggling to cope with increased demand.
“The Dock Doors of Giving Campaign is about more dan simply donating. It’s about lasting support and commitment to the communities that we are part of”, explains Sander Breugelmans, Senior Vice President, Regional Head Northern Europe. “With this campaign we are able to show how we can make a real difference for charities and community groups as COVID-19 continues to put pressure on all areas of life. What makes this campaign extra valuable is the fact that our employees could personally select the charitable causes. This further strengthened the commitment of our employees to be a force for good in our local communities."
In the Benelux, Prologis supported a total of 17 charitable causes, among which Kika, Ronald McDonald Zuidoost Brabant and Warchild. All charitable causes contributed and selected were personal to our employees involved with the campaign.
