GLP continues to support the global energy transition by investing in solar, wind, electric vehicles and battery storage and charging technologies for its assets. At the end of 2022, the firm had 700+ megawatts (MW) of solar capacity installed on the rooftops of its real estate portfolio and third-party rooftops which contributes to lowering CO2 emissions. The clean energy generated is sold back to customers and utility companies, which has the potential to help reduce the pressure on local electricity grids and ties into GLP’s overall ESG and sustainability goals.
Stefano Fissolo, Senior Director, GLP Europe Clean Energy, commented: “Our team’s collective track record spans the entire technology spectrum of the energy transition and covers the full project lifecycle of renewable energy assets both from a transactional and operational standpoint. This will be an invaluable asset as we continue to expand our activities in solar, battery storage, EV charging and other adjacent technologies. We are seeing record levels of demand for decarbonisation solutions from our existing and prospective customer base across our business lines from logistics to data centres. We’re proud to be a sustainability leader in the sector, and with our strong and growing team we will continue to push innovation and progress in this area.”
