ISO 14001

ISO 14001

Prologis was the first logistics real estate company to obtain ISO 14001 certification for environmental management. We did so for four of our regions in 2008 (Southern Europe, Northern Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, and the UK). Det Norske Vertas (DNV) extended this accreditation in 2011.

Prologis develops new facilities to global sustainability standards and upgrades existing buildings with efficient lighting, cool roofs and low-water solutions. We work tirelessly to minimize our environmental impacts today and lay plans to ensure a better tomorrow. Prologis will continue to improve its environmental performance by meeting a demanding set of objectives by 2020.

In 2016, we extended the ISO 14001 environmental management system certification from Europe to the U.S. Compliance with the ISO 14001 standard is a source of pride at Prologis.

Eco construction


At Prologis, we strive to use materials that ensure the environmental quality of our buildings:

  • Wood is used on facades of warehouses to help the buildings integrate into the surrounding environment
  • Our standard recommendation for lighting is LED or TP bulbs
  • Many of our buildings include solar panel installation on the roofs
  • We redevelop industrial sites and continually seek to reuse and recycle demolition materials
Green Worksite

Green Worksite

During the construction process, Prologis implements a green worksite program aimed at reducing waste, noise and disturbance to the environment. To avoid waste, we selectively sort and recycle worksite materials and use laminated wood frameworks. To ensure our buildings will be airtight, we inspect insulation with pressurization and airborne infrared cameras.
