We’ve been working with Warwickshire College Group (WCG) for the past four years and currently sponsor their involvement with the Planet Mark™ certification scheme. Through this scheme, the group of colleges have been working hard to reduce their carbon, energy, water and waste and have really embraced sustainability as a core part of the college culture.
As a property company we’ve been putting sustainability at the heart of our business for the past decade and our sustainability programme funds education officers from The Eden Project to go into schools local to our developments and talk to the children about sustainability and how they can play their part in protecting the planet.
Over the past decade we’ve delivered this programme to 6,167 children in 48 schools and colleges close to Prologis developments and, just recently, we were able to take this initiative out of the classroom for the first time and really bring sustainability to life for a group of students from Rugby College.
Sustainability is being discussed enthusiastically by students and teaching staff in courses across the whole of WCG and, to help the group with its sustainability journey, we recently hosted a group of twenty five students from the Rugby College at The Eden Project in Cornwall.
“We value our partnership with Prologis and the important role it plays in the education of students about sustainability,” said Mark Bonham, Assistant Principal for WCG.
“This trip to the Eden Project was not only insightful, but provided a great opportunity to open the minds and thoughts of our students from Rugby College, and we were honoured to be the first college selected as part of this new initiative.”
