Sustainabilty at Fresh Montgomery
In 2010 Fresh Montgomery obtained Certification for managing it’s events to BS8901 the British Standard for Sustainable Event Management. This British Standard has now been migrated to a new international standard ISO 20121 and Fresh Montgomery are seeking re-certification to this standard. This will involve an on-site audit at Specialty and Fine Food Fair 2012 by the British Standards Institute.

What is ISO 20121? ISO 20121 is a management system standard for the implementation of the consideration for sustainable development in events. In other words, ISO 20121 is a way of working which helps you consider how to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, at every business decision point. The social, economic and environmental goals of sustainable development are interdependent and mutually reinforcing.
More and more, the world is demanding events that are environmentally friendly, ethically sound and of benefit to the economy.
