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.
