Agiito adopts ISO for sustainable meetings and events

Agiito is adopting the ISO 20121 accreditation for sustainable meetings and events.

The TMC has been working towards the standard since March 2022 and expects to be accredited for ISO 20121 by the end of the year.

Agiito has incorporated ISO 20121 into its existing Integrated Management System for 9001, 14001, 27001 and 22301.

This has also influenced its overall ways of working to “continue delivering more memorable events that maximise performance and energy efficiency, while minimising the impact on the environment and local communities”.

All team members are completing ‘Sustainable Events’ training while the company has also updated its marketing material to include green symbols and compliance logos recognised by customers.

More importantly, Agiito has established a culture in events by “reducing, re-using and recycling” so all Event Managers mitigate, ameliorate, and eliminate any negative impacts from events on the environment.

It is also supporting the reporting of sustainability outcomes, which supports their customers’ goals and subsequently enables Agiito to create better events in the future.

“We wanted to ensure sustainability remains at the heart of our ways of working, so made the decision to work towards this standard to give our customer assurance that we can help meet their environmental targets and goals. As more businesses look to work with responsible suppliers and tenders request evidence of sustainable practices, we believe working towards this standard will give customers confidence in our event operations,” said Kirsty Given, Director of Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability at Agiito.

“We’ve been using this standard to define roles and responsibilities for staff, contractors and suppliers, while also helping us identify ways to improve event planning and delivery for the future.”
