ISO has published a new standard to support the organizers of events of all types – sporting, business, cultural, political – in integrating sustainability with their activities. This is a guidance standard and currently not under the purview of accredited service for ISOQAR.
ISO 20121:2012 – Event sustainability management systems – Requirements with guidance for use.
20121’s flexible approach enables adoption for all types of events, from musical shows to school outings.
The standard has been developed with input from many different stakeholders, including representatives from the event industry, to make it practical and useful. It addresses all stages of an events’ supply chain, and includes monitoring and measuring guidelines.
