A DURABLE, CREDIBLE AND RELIABLE CERTIFICATION PROGRAMME FOR WORKPLACES AT A EUROPEAN LEVEL REGARDING PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AT WORK
Established in the framework of the Erasmus+ Sport programme and supported by EU Commission, the Workplace Active Certification (WAC) is aimed at European organisations (companies, institutions, federations, associations, etc.) that promote health and well-being at work through physical activity, and which wish to have their approaches and progression recognised. The Workplace Active Certification is accessible to any type of organisation, irrespective of its size, location, culture, sector of activity, social and economic situation.
