WRG Creative Communication awarded ISO20121

WRG Creative Communication (WRG) has been awarded the new global sustainability standard for the events industry, ISO 20121.

Said Mark Wallce, chairman, WRG: “Clients are now demanding strong environmental credentials of their agencies, that match their own corporate and social responsibility programmes.

“The team at WRG has worked hard in the past 18 months, with guidance from consultants, Sustainable Balance. To be one of the first to achieve the new international standard is heartening news and means a great deal to us.

“We recognise that events and exhibitions have a massive impact on the environment and the awarding of this new standard will help us maintain our leadership in fighting this impact on society. As WRG continues to grow, understanding and managing these impacts is a strategic priority for our customers and our business.”

ISO 20121 sets out the building blocks of a sustainability management system, helping a business to act in a socially responsible manner, reducing its environmental impact in both day-to-day business as well as on the many projects it designs and manages for clients.
