ISO 20121: A new standard in sustainable event management.
The Olympic Games in London made international organizations aware of the need to develop a new standard defining a sustainable management system in the event industry. The continual increase in the number of events and the global reach of such projects require a responsible approach that will take into account the economic, environmental and social consequences of mass events. Accordingly, the International Standardization Organization introduced IS0 20121: Sustainability in event management “, jointly drawn up by 30 countries. Within the new ISO 20121 standard, a framework of pro-ecological solutions has been drawn up that can be used not only by event organizers, but also by individual participants in the supply chain. Such systemic action “from scratch” will lead to long-term and multifaceted changes that will significantly minimize the negative impact of industry on the environment.
