Events INDUSTRY Council

We are on the Sustainability and Social Impact Committee and a proud contributor to the Sustainable Event Professional Certificate programme.

 

The SEPC programme is for those events professionals interested in accelerating sustainability and social impact in their organisations and global business events. The programme provides guidance that will be valuable for reaffirming our industry’s commitment to a recovery that is resilient, sustainable and equitable.

 

This course has recently been expanded from the in-person programme and provides the knowledge and tools for event strategists to design and implement their own sustainable events. Developed by a globally diverse group of business events industry leaders and experts in the areas of sustainability, social impact and event management, this highly interactive and accessible format takes users on an engaging, insightful and easy-to-follow journey.

 

The Sustainable Event Professional Certificate is comprised of 16 modules that include understanding the business value of sustainability, improving environmental performance of meetings and events, and effective methods for achieving social impact goals. As part of the programme, participants will have access to a digital workbook with activities to customise a roadmap for their own sustainable event. The course culminates in a straightforward “Final Sustainable Capstone Project”; a certificate of completion for 12 CEs and digital badge is awarded as a result.

ISO - International Organisation for standardisation

 

ISO 20121:2012 specifies requirements for an event
sustainability management system for any type of event or event-related
activity, and provides guidance on conforming to those requirements.

 

ISO 20121:2012 is applicable to any organization that wishes
to:

 

  • establish, implement, maintain and improve an event
    sustainability management system;
  • ensure that it is in conformity with its stated sustainable
    development policy;
  • demonstrate voluntary conformity with ISO 20121:2012 by
  • first party (self-determination and self-declaration),
  • second party (confirmation of conformance by parties having
    an interest in the organization, such as clients, or by other persons on their
    behalf), or
  • an independent third party (e.g. a certification body).

ISO 20121:2012 has been designed to address the management
of improved sustainability throughout the entire event management cycle.
