The standard ISO20121:2012, Event Sustainability Management System, was officially issued in 2012. It provides guidance on improving the sustainability of event-related activities to contribute to the three pillars of sustainability: economic, environmental, and social. Various global events, including the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, and the 18th Asian Games Jakarta-Palembang 2018, have used Event Sustainability Management Systems to manage the sustainability of the event and control their social, economic, and environmental impact.
The QSNCC’s achievement of the ISO20121:2012 standard is another step in establishing event management services that align with national and global sustainable development goals. We set the policy and implemented initiatives in three pillars of sustainability: environment, social, and economic. The environmental initiative includes following the plan of action to optimize the benefit of the resource, utilizing renewable energy, and using eco-friendly products. The social effort includes installing a safety system that meets international standards so that our employees and visitors can be confident that their safety is our top priority. The economy initiative encompasses good governance, transparency, and accountability in corporate management.
