Prologis, the global leader in logistics real estate today shared its charitable impact in Europe and steadfast commitment to local communities and good causes. Europe’s most sustainable developer of industrial logistics parks, has a proud history of giving back to charities and communities. Recently, 12 of our European offices took part in a month-long ‘Dock Doors of Giving campaign’, aimed at returning much needed funds to charitable causes and community groups hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today, on World Cancer Day, we’re sharing how our employees and supply chain, together with the Prologis Foundation, returned over €275,000 to 91 charities across Europe, outperforming the initial target of €200,000.
Donations ranged from financial contributions to food, toys and other items, including hand sanitiser and much needed PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), to food banks and community groups struggling to cope with increased demand.
“The Dock Doors of Giving campaign is about more than simply donating, for us it’s more important to be able to support people and organizations that work to assist vulnerable groups in society with what we others take for granted”, says Magnus Thim, head of Real Estate and Customer Experience Lead at Prologis Nordics. “It can be simple things like being able to take a short vacation in a restful environment, practice a sport or just get something fun in the Christmas gift package. It was fantastic to work with colleagues in Europe and together make a difference on so many levels.”
Beneficiaries include: Gothenburg City Mission, Ågrenska, and 7HParaAlpint. All charitable causes contributed and selected were personal to our employees involved with the campaign.
