At SGS we can help your organization, venue, or event improve its environmental performance and demonstrate your commitment to promoting a sustainability management system. Our assessment against the ISO 20121 standard helps your organization to improve the sustainability of events by reducing their impact on the environment.

Events impact the environment and economy at several levels including water consumption, solid waste production, and energy consumption, effects on biodiversity, employment and supplier selection. An ISO 20121 sustainability management system helps your organization to set and achieve realistic targets as well as implement the policies and procedures to implement best practice.

We can provide you with a full range of assessment and audit services related to ISO 20121 certification. Educate and inform your team with SGS-led training and workshops on the audit and implementation processes. When you’re ready we can then carry out the relevant assessment and certification audits.

Your organization or event’s supply chain is equally important to your sustainability management system. We can carry out second party audits to monitor your supply chain, anywhere in the world.

The standard can be applied to all occasions, from a local craft show to a major event and is applicable to event owners, organizers and suppliers. Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability and contact SGS to assess and audit your ISO 20121 event management certification.
