Sustainability is a strategic pillar for Abrasce and for the Shopping Mall sector overall, not only because of the social and environmental issues inherent in mall operations, but also because of the creation of value for business and possible financial returns.
The segment accounts for 3% of Brazil’s GDP and generates more than 3 million jobs throughout its value chain; more than 490 million visitors pass through malls every month. All these figures make us even more responsible for maintaining the health and well-being of the planet and the population.
Modern consumers prefer conscientious brands and demand changes in brand positioning, which is why companies have been developing business models that encompass sustainable projects and reduction of costs, aimed at a holistic and sustainable way of managing the entire business chain.
Abrasce’s Committees act to further the work and discussions on the topics of greatest interest to the segment. Their efforts result in products and publications that contribute toward the development of the Shopping Mall sector in Brazil.
Led by Abrasce’s Market Intelligence area, the purpose of this committee is to discuss the sector’s performance. The primary goal is to combine the professionals’ practical knowledge with the results obtained by Abrasce’s Sector Monitoring, aligning expectations for communication and dissemination, as well as providing information for the market and the media.

Abrasce’s People Management Committee, which convenes at two meetings annually, seeks to expand discussions among Human Resources managers in the sector, sharing the best practices of their organizations and indicating key challenges in the area, and how these challenges can be overcome.
With the strong expansion of shopping malls in Brazil, the sector has become a constant target for government intervention, through laws, decrees, and other legislative measures. The specialized Legal Committee – formed by top managers of Legal Departments at shopping malls in Brazil – aims to ensure free initiative and private trade in a broad-based and unconditional way. For more information: email@example.com.
This Committee seeks the best strategies and solutions for an area that is in constant need to keep up-to-date, undergo training, and exchange information. The Security Committee consists of representatives of some of the foremost business groups in Brazil. To better serve the entire country, Abrasce has Regional Security Committees in the states of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul, Pernambuco, Amazonas and Federal District.
It aims to share information involving the areas of communication and marketing, stimulating exchanges of knowledge, good practices and relevant information about our sector.
It has the main corporate heads of operations of the entrepreneurial groups associated with Abrasce. In order to share the best practices in the market, the Committee was instrumental in the production of the Association's health protocols and is in frequent discussion on all issues relevant to the operation of shopping malls.
As a relevant segment in Brazil, Abrasce has maintained the Outlets Malls Committee since 2016 to exchange information and debate topics of common interest, such as regulations, policies, trends and partnerships.
Created to support the B2B platform, Empório Clube, the Committee is made up of directors and purchasing managers from entrepreneurial groups to encourage the exchange of information and discuss topics of common interest.
