NEPI Rockcastle Ensuring Safe Shopping within Shopping Centers

Kragujevac Plaza and Promenada Mall in Serbia, operated by NEPI Rockcastle, received certificates issued by Safe Shopping Centers, to comply with COVID-19 international security measures.

The certificates were awarded by the Safe Shopping Centers (SSC), an independent Swedish company that assesses the safety of shopping centers around the world.

“We are delighted to be working with NEPI Rockcastle on this important mission, for both of their shopping malls in Serbia. In this way, they once again confirm their leading role in the countries where they do business, greatly exceeding the prescribed minimums and setting up new standards of responsibility when it comes to shopping centers, ” said the representatives of SSC.

Promenada mall was the first shopping center to receive this certificate in Serbia in June, and soon after Kragujevac Plaza followed the trend.
