Sustainability

We consistently seek to go further in our industrial sustainability commitment and performance

Your people, customers and broader stakeholders are increasingly demanding more sustainable products and services. Our team is building for tomorrow. Our future-focused sustainability mission includes targeting a minimum of 5 star Green Star Design & As-Built ratings for all new industrial developments. We're innovating at an asset level that exceeds the industry standard to drive greener warehouse operations. We actively partner with our customers to achieve our shared sustainability goals.

We have delivered on our strategy of Net Zero Carbon in operations by 2022 and recently achieved our goal of procuring 100% offsite renewable electricity for our portfolio. We are proud to have received recognition as a global leader for our climate reporting.
