WHAT IS ISO?

ISO is the Geneva-based International Organization for Standardization, the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards. ISO brings experts together through its members to create standards that help business ensure products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality.

WHY USE ISO STANDARDS?

ISO standards are strategic tools and guidelines to help companies increase consumer satisfaction, as well as reduce costs by increasing productivity and operational efficiency. They provide a management framework that can also help business to reduce their environmental impact and access new markets.

WHAT IS ISO 20121?

ISO 20121 is an international standard designed to help organizations integrate sustainability into management practices and processes for MEETINGS & EVENTS. It delineates the building blocks of a management system that will help any organization that hosts or is involved in meetings and events to be more socially, environmentally and financially responsible.

If you are looking for your next area for improvement, consider this: about 1.8 million meetings and events occur in the U.S. each year, resulting in $280 billion in spending.
