ISO 20121

It is now two years since the ISO 20121 standard was launched. We will review how organizations have implemented ISO 20121 to create truly sustainable events with a real legacy.  We will also look at key issues that organizations have in staging high profile global events, especially as we move towards Qatar 2020, and Rio 2016.

The webinar will provide a view on where sustainable events are going and can go from here. This will help event organizers plan how they are going to achieve their sustainability goals and win loyalty from their stakeholders by creating truly sustainable events.


The launch of the ISO 20121 standard was a landmark in sustainability and has focused the events industry on their impacts as well as providing the ingredients to develop a driver for economic success. The events industry has a significant positive role to play in society and yet events carry their own consequences too. Many countries and tourism bureaus are realizing this to their advantage whilst positioning their industries to promote their credentials to the overseas visitors. Thailand is a particular exemplar that we will highlight.

The arrival of ISO 20121 provided a guide to support organizations to minimize their impact – and can be used by any organization – from large stadia, sports events organizers, conference organizers in business, the MICE sector, or promotions industry – any organization that hosts events or runs events or part of the events value chain.

This webinar builds on a series of successful webinars delivered by SGS to support the growing awareness needs of professionals (and especially sustainability and communications professionals) across the Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) Industry and in the wider Travel, Leisure, Tourism and, Hospitality. It is also aimed at events’ organizers and venue owners in the global Sports sector. This webinar builds on the professional competence requirements for professionals operating in the events sector by building their knowledge of the sustainability solutions for their sector.
