COP22, First Event to Conform to ISO 20121 Standards in Africa

 The 22nd Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP22) becomes the first event in Africa to conform to ISO 20121 standards.

The Awards Ceremony of the ISO Certificate 20121 for the organisation of the COP22 took place this Friday in the Moroccan Pavillion of the COP22.

It was presented to Abdeladim Lhafi, Commissioner General of COP22 by Marc Roussel, Vice-President of the group Bureau Veritas.

The ISO 20121 standard outlines all the requirements necessary for a management system integrating sustainable development for all types of events and event activities, and supplying the directives to comply to these demands.

The taking into account of all sustainable development requirements during the organisation of COP22 was a central consideration of the Pilot Committee responsible for the organisation of the event.
