What is BS 8901:2009?

BS 8901 provides a set of guidelines to help with the planning and management of sustainable events. Aimed at individuals, as well as organizations and enterprises, this standard is widely used in the UK to improve economical development, while reducing the social and environmental impact of events. The requirements set out within BS 8901 were developed for events of all types and sizes – ranging from large scale conferences and unique events, to music festivals and air shows. This standard can be applied throughout the entire supply chain.

How does it work?

The guidelines of BS 8901 are practical and easy to understand – helping people to manage the environmental, financial and social risks that go hand in hand with event management.
