Partner Profile: Prologis

Prologis is proud to be a responsible global citizen, and Junior Achievement (JA) recognizes the company’s support in Colorado and around the world. Prologis’ approach to corporate responsibility comprises three dimensions: the planet, people and excellence in business ethics and governance.

Prologis supports hundreds of community activities and social causes. In 2013, the company donated more than $1.3 million in cash and in-kind donations to charities and other organizations. Activities included environmental cleanup in Japan, volunteering at food banks throughout the U.S. and charity bike and foot races in China, Europe and the U.S. Prologis also gives full-time employees three paid days off each year to volunteer.

Prologis’ generous corporate citizenry lives through its work with JA. Over the past decade, Prologis has invested nearly $1 million in JA programming and has dedicated thousands of hours to improving the lives of students at Sable Elementary School. Employees provide backpacks, school supplies, holiday food and coats for students in need, and teach JA programs. Many Prologis employees participate each year in JA classroom volunteer projects and at the JA Bowl-a-Thon, where they are a top-five fundraiser.

“We are grateful to have a committed partner like Prologis and want to thank the volunteers who serve as role models to students at Sable – children who, with the right combination of education, encouragement and inspiration, will grow up to be our next generation of leaders,” said Robin Wise, President and CEO, Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain, Inc.

“We have long-standing commitment of teaching children about business and helping to prepare them for the future,” said Ed Nekritz, chief legal officer, general counsel, Prologis. “It’s important to promote an entrepreneurial spirit in young people and give them insight into what it means to be involved in the global economy.”
