What we did
We worked with UBM Live to plan and implement their sustainable events management system.
This gained external certification under ISO 20121 for more than 5 of their exhibitions globally, and for their UK and Dutch headquarters. Implementing this system embedded sustainability across their operations, resulting in significant savings and a return on investment while the creation of an internal sustainability legal register further demonstrates UBM’s legal compliance, and is a tool for the strategic analysis of the division’s business decisions.
Adopting a more strategic approach to the implementation of the management system has added value to the process, ensuring that it has not become a ‘tick box’ type of exercise.
What they said
Mirabelle Chatterjee – Senior Manager, UBM Live
“Over the past 2 years, UBM have been working towards achieving firstly the BS8901 Sustainability Accreditation and latterly ISO 20121. Without the knowledge and guidance of Ardea, we would not have been able to set up our systems and processes, which were pivotal in order to achieve each of these Standards. It is essential to have professional help during this process and I have no hesitation in highly recommending Colleen.”
