Towards Sustainable Buildings
By Suzanne Fallender, Prologis
Strong tailwinds and significant benefits are necessitating the drive towards more sustainable buildings. Companies can adopt several strategies, ranging from installing rooftop solar systems to better mobility solutions.
Logistics real estate plays a crucial role in supporting economic development. The sector’s strategic distribution centers make the global supply chain more efficient and resilient. Every day, it helps businesses scale and streamline their supply chains.
According to the World Green Building Council, the built environment accounts for nearly 40% of global carbon emissions. As such, we as participants in the real estate sector have a responsibility to drive action not just within our buildings, but also across our industry and with our customers. We can and should transition towards more sustainable building strategies to mitigate this impact.
