KEY INFO

In Europe +200min people are physically inactive.

The health costs related to sedentary behavior amount to 80billion euro per year in EU28.

Europeans spend large time of their daytime at work, that can be the most suitable setting to engage people in physical activity.

Physical activity at work is good for employees in terms of health, wellbeing and stress reduction, but is good also for company’s productivity, absenteeism and turnover reduction, better reputation, talent attraction, increased motivation and social inclusion.

However, only 13% of active people do it at work and the number is still the same since 2013.

WHY A CERTIFICATION?

  • To regulate the field of physical activity within European companies to implement sport programs safely and effectively (or in order to guarantee security and effectiveness).
  • To allow compagnies to have a reliable way to show their audiences they are taking the issue seriously.
  • To incentivize compagnies that that are not active enough and to reward good practices.
  • To raise the awareness about the importance and the benefits of company sport.
  • To help companies in their process of being or becoming inactive.
