On Friday 15th June ISO 20121 launched.
ISO 20121 is a sustainability standard created for the international event industry, by the event industry.
Since 2010, over 30 countries (including UK, North America, Japan and Sweden) have been involved in the creation of a standard based on BS 8901, the British standard for event sustainability.
Chaired by UK based Fiona Pelham from Sustainable Events Ltd, this standard is likely to change how the event industry considers their social, economic and environmental impacts. ISO 20121 is suitable for all sizes and types of events, or members of the event industry supply chain.
London 2012 has been a vital catalyst for the creation of ISO 20121, and along with a number of their supply chain, they are committed to the immediate implementation of ISO 20121 as a demonstration of best practice in action.
