Sustainable Events

USAOCR follows the International Organization for Standardization ISO 20121 standard for guidance and best practice to manage events. This is used to control their social, economic and environmental impact. Every action counts, from relying on tap water instead of plastic bottles to encouraging use of public transport. 

The sustainable events standard has been developed with input from many different stakeholders, including representatives from the event industry, to make it practical and useful. It addresses all stages of an events’ supply chain, and includes monitoring and measuring guidelines.
