There was great excitement at DSV’s new distribution centre on Prologis Park Sideway recently when company representatives were presented with The Planet Mark™ certificate for their building.
The distribution centre, a major hub for the global transport and logistics company, had its whole-life carbon impact officially certified by The Planet MarkTM,, a sustainability certification recognising new developments that go beyond compliance, as part of a long-standing commitment to sustainable development by Prologis UK. Working with the environmental charity Cool Earth, Prologis also mitigated 110% of the carbon involved in the construction of the buildings on Prologis Park Sideway by protecting 169 acres of rainforest in Ashaninka, Peru.
“Sustainable development is something we gift to every owner or occupier of a Prologis building in the UK, allowing them to start their own sustainability journey,” said Simon Cox, Head of Sustainability at Prologis UK.
“We feel passionately that, as a property company, we should play our part in reducing average lifetime carbon in our buildings to bring the benefits of sustainability to our customers, the local community and beyond. This legacy of sustainable development is something we gift to every owner or occupier of a Prologis building in the UK, allowing them to start their own sustainability journey.”
