ISO 20121 supersedes BS 8901 for Sustainable Event Management
ISO 20121 has taken a couple of years to develop off the back of BS 8901 and countries all around the world have participated in developing the new international standard. ISO 20121 has already been implemented by the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games to manage the sustainability of the delivery of the London Olympics.
BS ISO 20121:2012 – Event Sustainability Management Systems, helps event organisers, including suppliers and venues, save money by identifying unnecessary waste. Whether reusing resources, eliminating over-ordering or reducing energy costs, ISO 20121 identifies those actions generally overlooked to promote efficiency, resourcefulness and sustainable ideals.
