The EFCI is the voice of the European cleaning and facility services industry.

We are a federation of national associations of cleaning and facility services industries. We bring together organisations from 13 European countries, representing 240,000 companies employing more than 3,6 million people.

The EFCI is an international non-profit association and is the recognised Social Partner by the European Commission for the sector.

 

THE EUROPEAN CLEANING AND FACILITY SERVICES INDUSTRY

Our industry is one of the major services industries in Europe, satisfying one of the fundamental needs of our society: hygiene and cleanliness.

Industrial cleaning covers the cleaning of offices, hygiene of food chains, specialised cleaning services, façade and window-cleaning as well as the cleaning of schools. They all involve the use of sophisticated equipment as well as specific training for employees.

The diversification of cleaning companies towards integrated services and facility management is a reality across Europe. Facility services providers offer, on top of cleaning, a wide range of other support services for organisations, such as catering, transportation, gardening, technical maintenance activities, reception or laundry services.

The cleaning and facility services industry is committed to:

  • offering quality services to its customers;
  • providing training and stability to its employees;
  • integrating in the circular economy and focusing on sustainability;
  • innovation and competitiveness.
