The company, which manages ten venues in Paris and Ile-de-France, launched the international standard for sustainable events certification process in 2013 as part of its CSR policy.
All ten of the Group's venues were audited as part of the process, which took 18 months to complete.
Renaud Hamaide, Viparis’ CEO, said: "In 2013 I decided to add an extra dimension to our CSR policy in the form of ISO 20121 certification, as this is the international benchmark standard in our sector. This demanding standard raises the visibility of our CSR policy for our stakeholders and also enables us to improve our current programmes."
ISO 20121 was developed by event industry specialists and aims to implement a strong CSR management system throughout the industry, at all levels. It is recognised worldwide and is symbolised by the example of the 2012 London Olympic Games.
Viparis hosts an estimated 330 trade shows, 125 conferences and 500 corporate events for a total of 9.2 million visitors a year.
