#FORFUTURE

mediapool leading the way: International sustainability standards in the event industry. 

Since January 12, 2021, mediapool is the first company in Germany to be system-certified according to DIN ISO 20121 for Sustainable Event Management and will thus have a demonstrable, long-lasting and sustainable impact on Berlin as a Smart City. The DIN ISO 20121 standard was developed by the International Organization of Standardization (ISO) as an international sustainability standard against which sustainable event planning and implementation are uniformly measured.

This standard covers ecological, economic and social aspects in terms of sustainability within the company and along the entire (!) value chain of an event or our entire work profile. From the selection of suppliers to transfers and meeting venues to communication, this standard covers everything.

For comparison: the EU-wide recognized EMAS refers exclusively to the improvement of environmental performance within a company or buildings. For our analog, hybrid and digital events, this means that all interfaces and every service, from water and electricity to the entire personnel management, catering and sanitary facilities, are considered by us in a sustainable manner, specifically examined and continuously improved.

We are thus setting international climate-positive standards in Berlin as a future smart city.

Science and business – the joint path to a sustainable future
Thanks to the intensive exchange between science and business in this process, this is the first time that a company has been holistically assessed and thus system-certified according to ISO 20121. A courageous but indispensable step toward a sustainable future in difficult times.
