Materiality Assessment

Materiality Assessment

Every two years, starting in 2013, we have completed a materiality assessment. In our 2019 assessment, we engaged internal and external stakeholders to ensure a broad range of perspectives to inform our understanding of Prologis’ impacts on the environment, economy and society.

Four material topics emerged from our 2019 biennial materiality assessment: Emissions, Energy, Local Communities and Indirect Economic Impacts.

Our materiality assessment was conducted based on GRI standards and evaluates the importance of Prologis' business on the economy, the environment, society and other stakeholders.
