The announcement was made at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
The 2020 recognition marks Prologis’ eleventh appearance on the list. Global 100 companies represent the top 1 percent in the world on sustainability performance, and the list is widely considered to be the world’s most authoritative sustainability assessment. It is administered by Corporate Knights, a specialized media company and investment research firm that ranks publicly traded global companies on a broad scope of metrics related to environmental stewardship, social responsibility and governance (ESG).
“This recognition demonstrates our leadership not only in real estate but across a spectrum of diverse global companies,” said Prologis chief legal officer and ESG head Edward S. Nekritz. “We remain steadfast about our commitment to and focus on industry-leading innovation.”
Corporate Knights’ analysis comprised a rigorous assessment of 7,395 companies against global industry peers on a suite of up to 21 quantitative key performance indicators (among them greenhouse gas emissions, clean revenue, leadership diversity and earnings) weighted to reflect each industry's impact profile.
“The Global 100 companies show that companies that put sustainability at their core outlast and outperform the competition,” said Corporate Knights CEO Toby Heaps.
