The opening of LoureShopping played a very significant role in providing the Loures region with innovative, high-quality shops and leisure facilities. As well as a wide variety of shops, the shopping centre boasts a Green Park extending over more than five hectares in the surrounding area, accessible to visitors and the community in general.
LoureShopping also stands out for complying with the most stringent standards in what regards comfort, accessibility, safety, seamless integration with the surroundings and environmental quality, implemented from the earliest project stage. LoureShopping was the first shopping centre in Portugal to obtain the ISO 14001 environmental certification, pertaining to the adoption of the best environmental management practices, during the construction stage.
LoureShopping was also the first shopping centre in Portugal to obtain a certification for its global accessibility management system (UNE 170001-2:2001 Standard), which seeks to ensure that public spaces and premises offer easy access to all visitors, namely persons with motor disabilities.
