Additional insight from Ben Bannatyne, president, Prologis Europe:

While the fundamentals of our business are very strong, we are closely monitoring our customers’ needs and the overall environment. The ongoing war and growing energy challenges in Europe remain top of mind. We run our company to thrive over a variety of economic cycles, which puts us in an even better position to support our customers.

We continue to set our business and portfolio apart from the competition by listening to our customers and find innovative ways to support their growth and success. Take our energy offerings. We’re making capital investments and bringing on experienced new leaders to help our customers on their path to generating a lower-carbon footprint.

As an industry leader in renewable energy, we have set ambitious goals for increased solar generation, are investing in EV infrastructure and have committed to reaching net zero by 2040 across our value chain. We believe the private sector can meaningfully impact the resilience and efficiency of the global supply chain.
