Ben Bannatyne, President of Prologis Europe: “We continue to see strong demand for properties in the Prologis portfolio, as evidenced by 98.2 percent occupancy and over 26 percent rental growth across the 12 European markets where we operate. Through the Prologis Essentials platform, we support our customers in decarbonizing their operations. This new platform offers tenants services and solutions such as solar panels and batteries for solar energy storage, electrification of vehicle fleets or installation of chargers for electric cars. In Prologis parks, customers can fully concentrate on their own business, and thanks to our sufficient supply of free buildable land, we can provide them with space for further growth."
