CapitaLand’s wholly owned lodging business unit, The Ascott Limited (Ascott), one of the leading international lodging owner-operators, has received The Ascott Cares x Bureau Veritas Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label at nine of its properties in Vietnam.

The Ascott Cares x Bureau Veritas Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label is a holistic programme developed in partnership with Ascott by leveraging Bureau Veritas’ health, hygiene and safety expertise of more than 190 years in providing testing, inspection and certification.

The programme, as part of Ascott Cares commitment, will continue providing “a safe home away from home” for guests and a safe working environment for local staff.

Launched in May 2020, Ascott Cares covers nine commitments to enhance Ascott’s existing cleanliness protocols.

Bureau Veritas’ auditors have conducted field audits at the nine properties and verified that the properties have appropriate health, hygiene and safety procedures and processes in place, and are in line with globally recognised best practices on preventive measures in order to be certified with the Ascott Cares x Bureau Veritas Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label.

Lew Yen Ping, Regional general manager for Ascott Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar said: “At Ascott, we continue to place the health and well-being of our guests and associates as our top priority. Ascott always comply with Vietnamese government regulation of safety and hygiene and now our partnership with Bureau Veritas offers our guests a greater peace of mind as they book their stay with Ascott. Our guests can continue to place their trust in Ascott to provide a home away from home that is not only comfortable, but also clean, secure and safe. With a safe working environment, our associates are also able to better focus on caring for our guests. We look forward to welcoming new and returning guests back home at Ascott.”

Juliano Cardoso, Executive vice President, CIF Asia, Pacific and Middle East, Bureau Veritas, commented: “We are very pleased to work with Ascott properties globally. The Ascott Cares x Bureau Veritas Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label allows Ascott to attest its commitment to reassure its guests that appropriate health, hygiene and safety standards are met and ensure safe working conditions for its employees through a consistent approach across all its properties. During this current health crisis, ensuring compliance to recommended health, hygiene and safety standards are at the forefront throughout society. We are proud to play our part in Shaping a World of Trust.”
