Some months ago the association Società Sportiva Dilettantistica Arrampicata Sportiva Arco srl, as the organiser and manager of the Rock Master Festival sports event, undertook the necessary steps to receive UNI ISO 20121:2013 certification for sustainable events management. Sustainable events management takes into account a series of environmental, social, and economic factors that include all those who, for various reasons, are involved in the event: employees, volunteers, sponsors, athletes, competition judges, suppliers of goods and services, sports clubs, public and private enterprises, spectators, and local citizens.
After evaluation by the regulatory body DNV GL before, during, and after the event, SSD Arrampicata Sportiva Arco srl received official certification of sustainable management for the Rock Master Festival. This is one of the first sport events in Italy to be certified in accordance to the UNI ISO 20121:2013 norm.
This result represents not an end but a basis on which to promote sport climbing and the Alto Garda Trentino territory.
The certificate was awarded with DNV GL, the company that evaluated our performance and also with Trento-based Master Net srl, who accompanied us throughout the entire certification process. This encounter provided the opportunity to analyse the event data and also the results of 130 questionnaires answered during the event aimed at finding out more about opinions regarding environmental, social, and economical issues.
The IFSC congratulates SSD Arrampicata Sportiva Arco srl on their exemplary model of sustainable event management. You make our sport proud!
