Launching the revised BS ISO 20121:2024

It's become imperative that events of every type and scale should start to systematically increase their sustainability.

This is the case, not only because of growing audience expectations and because it's the right thing to do for the planet and society; but also because of the commercial benefits that accrue from attracting bigger audiences, better sponsors, and saving on costs.

Simultanteously, by introducing sustainability at every decision point in event planning and delivery, event organizers are inspired to innovate and the legacy impact of the event becomes a priority.

Get in on the ground floor of the new international standard on sustainable event management

You can start learning how to create more sustainable events by joining our launch event for the revised BS ISO 20121:2024 Event sustainability management systems – Requirements with guidance for use on 22nd April.
