Our buildings are located on Prologis Parks, which we own, manage and maintain. At every Prologis Park, we aim to provide our customers with a high quality working environment and park-wide services designed to support their business operations.
Prologis RFI DIRFT is recognised as the most successful rail freight interchange and logistics park in the UK. Located at the centre of the country, DIRFT is close to the West Coast Mainline railway and the M1 motorway. Infrastructure work has started on the third phase of the development, which has detailed planning permission for 7.9 million sq ft of logistics space and a new rail terminal.
Prologis Park West London is situated just 1.5 miles from the M4 and is strategically located to serve Heathrow airport, greater London, the Thames valley and beyond
In the first collaboration of its kind, we are working with Planet Mark and Cool Earth to mitigate embodied carbon emissions by protecting the Amazon rainforest.
Prologis UK is the only industrial developer to address embodied carbon as part of a sustainable development methodology and we have put in place a process that delivers significant, quantifiable benefits.
Cool Earth is the only charity working on the frontline of deforestation. Its approach is to create strong, self-determining communities who protect their own forest and form a shield to make the neighbouring forest inaccessible to loggers, saving millions of acres.
Since Cool Earth joined the collaboration, 23 of our buildings have been Planet Mark certified and we have directly protected 6,158 acres of rainforest, which forms a barrier safeguarding a further 1.2 million acres. The project now includes 16 villages, where Cool Earth is establishing schools and helping local people to develop sustainable livelihoods.
Embodied carbon mitigation and support for Cool Earth has become standard practice for Prologis developments in the UK. The cumulative statistics provided below by Planet First are a powerful reminder of the project's environmental benefits and the potential for the future.
