Materiality Assessment

Materiality Assessment

Every two years, starting in 2013, we have completed a materiality assessment. In our 2019 assessment, we engaged internal and external stakeholders to ensure a broad range of perspectives to inform our understanding of Prologis’ impacts on the environment, economy and society.

Four material topics emerged from our 2019 biennial materiality assessment: Emissions, Energy, Local Communities and Indirect Economic Impacts.

Our materiality assessment was conducted based on GRI standards and evaluates the importance of Prologis' business on the economy, the environment, society and other stakeholders.

Measure sustainability with BREEAM®

Sustainability is in integral part of everything we do at Prologis. We aim to integrate it into the design, implementation and operation of our buildings. To measure and certify the sustainability performance of the building, Prologis applies the BREEAM assessment method. This is an established method of assessing, rating and certifying the sustainability of buildings.
