International event sustainability standard officially launched

ISO 20121: 2012, the international standard for event sustainability management has been officially launched. The standard specifies the requirements for an event sustainability management system for any event or event-related activity. Guidance on how to conform to the standard is available from ISO.

Organisations that wish to implement or improve their sustainability practices will benefit from the new standard, which has been designed to address the management of improved sustainability throughout the entire event management cycle.

Positive Impact has also produced a one-page guide to the new international standard, which is available here.
