ISO 20121 for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs)

Sustainable events can be large or small, but the benefits can be the same. ISO 20121 has been developed for the events industry to help you put sustainability first when managing and delivering your event. Small businesses can adapt the same standard to get the same results as larger companies. Find out how we can make ISO 20121 work for you.
