Lar España develops certification to guarantee safety in shopping centres

Megapark, Lar España's Shopping Centre

This certification, which will be a pioneer within the country’s retail segment, seeks to provide customers, traders, owners and administrations the maximum guarantee that the shopping centres and retail parks where they shop and work apply the correct measures, always in compliance with the mandatory norms.

The shopping centres owned by Lar España are managed exclusively by Grupo Lar and its subsidiary Gentalia, which have been implementing several measures concerning hygiene and safety, including, among others, controlled access, supervision and maintenance of required safety distancing, disinfection and sanitation of the premises, delivery of personal protection and hygiene measures and cleansing of the air conditioning and water supply.

From now on, SGS will verify the mentioned protocols, checking their compliance with the norms established by the national and autonomous sanitation authorities.

For José Manuel Llovet, general manager for Retail, Logistics and Offices at Grupo Lar, «Lar España’s cooperation with SGS highlights the common willingness and commitment to preserving the safety of our professionals and our customers. By verifying and certifying certain implemented measures, our customers will be able to access our shopping centres and retail parks knowing, at all times, that their safety is the sour main concern. Safe spaces for safe customers».

Alejandro González, general manager at SGS España, added that «we are going through a period, during which, more than ever, we will need to take care of people and their surroundings. It is a pleasure for us to cooperate and be able to provide all our experience within the sector. Our goal is to ensure that the highest standards in terms of hygiene are followed in order to protect both the visitors and workers of the shopping centres owned by Lar España».
