Neinver obtains the AIS accessibility certification for its centres in France and Italy

The company’s sustainability goals include certifying its entire owned portfolio under accessibility standards in the near future.

Neinver has obtained the AIS (Accessibility Indicator System) certification for its centres in France and Italy. With these certifications, Neinver continues its progress in its ongoing commitment to providing a fully inclusive shopping environment and offering support for people with limited mobility or disabilities.

The certification evaluates aspects related to physical, sensory and cognitive functional diversity criteria to guarantee that any person, regardless of their condition, can move throughout the outlet centre comfortably and safely. Some of the measures include adapted bathrooms and lactation rooms, high-contrast signage, dedicated adapted parking spaces, and the adaptation of evacuation routes and emergency exits, just to name a few.

In France, Roppenheim The Style Outlets obtained the 4 star AIS certification, and in Italy, Vicolungo and Castel Guelfo The Style Outlets earned 3 stars. They join Neinver’s Spanish portfolio, certified in 2018-19. The company’s sustainability goals include achieving accessibility standards for its entire portfolio in the near future, in line with its commitment to continue increasing the long-term value of its centres for all its stakeholders. 

The AIS certification – the only international certification standard for the degree of accessibility of spaces – is granted by Fundación ARS (Foundation for Accessibility and Social Responsibility), a private non-profit organisation that has been carrying out social projects and initiatives for over 40 years.

NEINVER’s social and environmental commitment

Neinver’s portfolio reflects the company’s ambitious sustainability strategy. The company has certified 90% of its portfolio under BREEAM In-Use and four ISO standards (9001,14001,50001 and 45001). 

The company’s firm commitment to responsible investment and management is also seen in its receipt of a GRESB 5 Star rating in the 2020 Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark, the main global environmental, social and governance (ESG) benchmark for real estate investments across the world. By receiving the highest rating, NEINVER’s ESG performance is positioned among the top 20% of the real estate industry. The company also increased its overall score to 90/100, well above the GRESB average of 70/100.
