ISO 20121:2012 (Event Sustainability Management Systems) Awareness


ISO 20121:2012 specifies requirements for an Event Sustainability Management System (ESMS) for any type of event or event-related activity, and provides guidance on conforming to those requirements.

The ISO 20121:2012 international standard provides state-of-the-art solutions for the event industry worldwide, and provides business, government and society with practical tools for all three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, environmental and social.

This presentation is designed for briefing your employees, new hires and potential auditees so as to create awareness of the ISO 20121 standard. Alternatively, the presentation may be used to supplement your materials for the training of ESMS professionals and internal auditors.

It covers the what and why of ISO 20121, the ESMS clause structure, and also offers practical tips on how to handle an audit session. When you are done teaching this material to your employees, they will be much more informed and comfortable with ISO 20121.
