Sustainable activity

Here at City Hall we want to make all our events as sustainable as we can.  In the run up to the London 2012 Games, we achieved the BS8901 standard in sustainable events.

City Hall’s Events for London and Facilities Management teams are now working towards the ISO 20121 standard.  This standard has been designed to help organisations make their events - and related activities, products and services - as sustainable as possible.

To find out more, see our Event Sustainability Policy.
