Getting started with ISO 20121 Sustainable Event Management

The best starting point for any event is sustainability. That means managing it so that you get more from less. ISO 20121 will help you minimise your impact on the environment and local communities. It will also maximise performance, achieve energy efficiency and win you full support from all stakeholders.  

What is ISO 20121 Sustainable Event Management?

ISO 20121 has been developed for the events industry to help you put sustainability first when managing and delivering your event. It’s for event companies or for businesses that put on events. The standard takes into account the geography, culture and social demographic of your event. ISO 20121 lets you take a long-term view and identify all potential impacts early on – helping you to reduce or prevent any that could be negative.

  • Achieve best practice levels of efficiency and performance
  • Define roles and responsibilities for staff, contractors and suppliers
