drp is Upgraded in International Standards
We recently had our annual audit for the International Standards Organisation’s Certifications for Event Sustainability Management (ISO 20121:2012) and transitioned our Environmental Management (from ISO 14001:2004 to ISO 14001:2015) accreditations. We passed the audit successfully and have transitioned to the new standard.
With events and businesses often having a significant impact on resources, society and the environment, it is essential to have systems in place to reduce this impact. Events can often cause considerable waste and consumption of resources like energy or water, alongside strain on local facilities or communities, if not managed properly. These accreditations ensure that companies make themselves sustainable, no matter their type or size.
We are one of the first agencies to have successfully transitioned to the new ISO 14001:2015 along with our ISO 20121 during this year’s annual audit, which tests whether we are still in keeping with the policies laid out in the ISOs. These accreditations offer guidance and best practice to help companies to manage their social, economic and environmental impact. The ISO standards provide a significant competitive advantage, and we recently attained the ISO 27001 (Information Security Management) too.
