Plain language guide to new event standard launched

This month saw the launch of the new international standard ISO 20121: Event Sustainability Management Systems. But what does it mean for your event or venue?


GreenShoot Pacific has produced a short plain-language guide to the standard which helps to decode the standard.

Involvement in the Sustainable Event Management movement is fast becoming expected of all event production and delivery. Best practice has moved away from ad-hoc issues management towards a systems approach.  This new approach offers a strategic way to manage sustainability and embed continual improvement. It ensures the inclusion of strategies, policies, processes, systems and actions that intertwine to support and manage event sustainability issues more efficiently, effectively and professionally.

The short guide to ISO 20121, is written by author of Sustainable Event Management: A Practical Guide Meegan Jones, offers a plain-language interpretation of the steps involved in implementing ISO 20121 and helps you to understand how this new international standard can be included in your event planning and delivery. It takes a casual explanatory approach and hopes to give you a prelude to how ISO 20121 may be applied by your event or organisation.
