Recognition of managment and social commitment
Our commitment to continuous improvement comes from far away, but this year we have made an important effort to improve our management and organization system, thanks to a help from the Cystic Fibrosis Spanish Federation. This effort has been successful, so we have achieved our first external recognition in terms of quality: “Recognition of management and social commitment” Level 1 Star, certified by Bureau Veritas, for the Balearic Association of Cystic Fibrosis. Thank you all for making this possible. Now it’s time to continue working on this quality commitment and certify the Foundation next year.
