Sustainability in Event Management

World OCR is committed to a healthy planet and the global environment. We use the international standard ISO 20121 Event Sustainability Management System, to ensure the sustainability of events in the World OCR system. This standard was developed for use at the 2012 London Olympic Games and is the global benchmark for sustainable events. 

ISO 20121 is a management system standard that has been designed to help organisations in the events industry improve the sustainability of their event related activities, products and services. ISO 20121 helps World OCR race producers and directors: 

  • Be financially successful
  • Become more socially responsible
  • Reduce their environmental footprint
