Hall of fame

We take great pride in being rewarded for our product and service excellence and innovation. Our most recent awards include:

Facil has obtained the VOKA Charter Sustainable Business 2020

As Facil we are strongly convinced that Sustainable Business is not an option but an obligation to make sure that the next generations will grow up and live in a healthy, peaceful, affordable and respectful society. Therefore we have initiated a project together with the Chamber of Commerce to further develop our business, organisation and processes to be fully in line with the Sustainable Development Goals.  During this project, which runs over 3 years, we are gradually defining and implementing effective actions to improve the conditions of humanity and the planet. Meanwhile each year our commitment and actions will be validated through an external committee of experts.  The intention is to achieve the UN recognized and approved Sustainability Charter by the summer of 2022.

After 1 year of teamwork we are proud to inform you that we have passed the first evaluation.
