This is what making a positive impact on the environment looks like in practice: for our parks throughout Poland, we have purchased over 107,000 guarantees of origin for energy from renewable sources. This means that, starting in January 2021, our customers are actively supporting the production of green energy while conducting their business in Prologis properties: over 80 buildings, on an area of 1.7 million square meters!
As a leader in sustainable development, we want to constantly increase our commitment to environmental protection - the purchase of energy with guarantees of origin is another important step in the implementation of our strategy. Limiting carbon footprints is also important for our customers, which is why we have taken joint action to make it easier for them. Our customers will now be able to enjoy even greater benefits from the opportunities currently offered by RES support mechanisms, says Paweł Kowalczyk, Real Estate & Customer Experience, Senior Manager at Prologis.
We have contracted over 107,000 MWh of energy with guarantees of origin for our customers throughout the year, promoting the production and consumption of energy from wind, solar and hydropower plants. By using energy with guarantees of origin, our customers are also involved in supporting the development of renewable energy in Poland. Guarantees of origin for energy are used extensively throughout the European Union.
The seller of energy for Prologis parks is TAURON, the second largest producer and supplier of energy on the Polish market.
TAURON's Green Transition not only involves activities aimed at increasing the production capacity of ecological energy sources, but also offers customers real support tools for implementing their sustainable development strategies. We are delighted that customers such as Prologis choose solutions that contribute to reducing their impact on the natural environment, says Tomasz Lender, Vice President of the Management Board at TAURON Sales.
Sustainable development and focusing on customer needs are the pillars of our business. For years, Prologis has been reporting on achievements in the field of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG). We are pleased that, thanks to the purchase of energy with guarantees of origin, we can also facilitate our customers’ involvement in environmental protection.
Whether it’s a trusted partnership, providing state-of-the-art warehouse space, or supporting our customers’ sustainable development, something special is… Made in Prologis.
