Developer Prologis starts to build carbon-neutral warehouses. The first will grow south of Paris
The new logistics facility located in Prologis Park Moissy 2 south of Paris will become Prologis' first carbon-neutral warehouse, which prevents emissions and reduces and compensates for 100 percent of the impacts associated with construction, operations or maintenance throughout the life of the building. The building is designed without a gas connection. It will use energy-saving elements of its design, roof solar panels, purchased ecological energy and thermal energy stored in the well for heating, cooling and electricity supply.
Developer Prologis recently announced this in a report summarizing its activities over the past year in the areas of ecology and environmental protection, social responsibility and governance.
Across Europe, Prologis launched several other smart buildings last year, incorporating state-of-the-art sustainable technologies and materials, using low-carbon materials, thermal energy wells and electric heat pumps. All construction will be carbon-neutral by developer Prologis by 2025.
