Meet Sustainably

Our mission at Explore Edmonton is to make sustainability a part of every event planning conversation. Every action around sustainability, big or small, is a step in the right direction and helps our dedicated Sustainability team push the envelope on what is possible and build a stronger foundation for the future of sustainable events. Regenerative events are top of mind for business event planners as organizations recognize the need to meet sustainably and leave host destinations better than they were found.

Responsible Events Program


WHAT IS ISO 20121?

ISO 20121 is a beacon for sustainable event management, guiding organizations to seamlessly integrate sustainability into every facet of event planning and execution. With a keen eye on social, economic, and environmental impacts, the standard is pivotal for events that aspire to leave a lasting positive legacy. The standard applies to events of all types and sizes, encouraging organizations to manage social, economic, and environmental impacts responsibly.


  • Reduce your event’s environmental impact.
  • Connect with local suppliers, vendors, and other partners to source sustainable products and services.
  • Take a holistic approach to your event’s sustainability plan, considering economic, environmental, and social impacts.


Working with Explore Edmonton's sustainability team means that minimizing your event’s negative environmental, social, or economic impact has never been simpler. From reducing waste and conserving resources to helping meeting planners source local, sustainable products and services, Explore Edmonton is ready and determined to help you integrate ISO 20121 principles into every aspect of your event planning. We look forward to having you join us on this journey towards a more sustainable future.
