ISO 20121 : 2012:

What is ISO 20121?

The ISO 20121 is a standard designed to support events organisations. This standard was launched to coincide with the London 2012 Olympics, and has gone from strength to strength as the value and benefit of a sustainable event has been realised.

An event that is well planned, secure, safe and sustainable can make a significant difference to an event’s stakeholders.  Organisations interested in this standard are those involved in any level of the chain of sustainable events, from host venues such as exhibition centres, to conference facilities, hotel complexes, sports venues and all organisations that support the delivery of successful and sustainable events.

Benefits of a sustainably run event:

  • Positive visitor experience
  • Improved licence to operate 
  • Reduction in the risks commonly arising from events operations
  • Inclusion of responsibly sourced food 
  • Reductions in overhead costs (e.g. energy costs)
