Sustainable Event Management System

About ISO 20121 event sustainability

ISO 20121 is recognized as a standard for the certification of the sustainable event management system.  Based on the "Plan-Do-Check-Act" methodology, it provides a systematic framework for the integration of sustainable management practices so as to reduce the impact related to economic, environmental and social aspects.

The standard is applicable to different categories of structures such as those involved in organizing events, service providers for these events, as well as the Management System relating to the organization of a single event (e.g. catering. Plants, stands, etc.).

In addition to demonstrating the responsibility of the organization towards a sustainable approach to events towards the community of reference, certification can support the significant reduction of environmental impacts and risks in the legal and social sphere.

Organizations that implement this system can reduce costs and improve their brand reputation. In addition, the sustainable management of events has beneficial effects on the socio / environmental and economic impacts of the event itself at different levels, such as the production of waste, the consumption of energy and water, the control of workers in the event organization chain. The ISO 20121 Management System supports the organization to establish and achieve the objectives that can be communicated to interested parties, as well as supports organizations to implement policies and procedures to achieve best practices.
