Events have an environmental, economic and social impact on the location in which they are held. Thus, the introduction of sustainability criteria in the entire lifecycle of an event, from the organisation stage until the legacy left behind, is of great importance.
UNE-EN-ISO 20121:2013specifies the requirements for a sustainability management system for any type of event or related activity. The standard provides criteria for the various stages and activities: design, planning, performance, implementation, review and activities after the sustainable event.
This standard is not designed for certifying an event, but rather the management system of an organisation that plans events. The objective is to ensure that the events are managed in accordance with the sustainability criteria.
This certification is applicable to any organisation that wishes to establish, implement, maintain and improve an event sustainability management system. Specifically, organisations that manage sustainable events and/or supply products and services to the same.
Once the audit has been passed, the organisation will obtain:
