Meet at Hall 1 of TAITRA’s Taipei NANGANG Exhibition Center:
Taiwan's first expo facility to gain ISO 20121 certification spotlights sustainability
All effort was made to have Hall 1 of TAITRA’s NANGANG Exhibition Center become Taiwan’s first exhibition center to win ISO 20121 Certification.
To achieve this, a great drive was undertaken to embrace sustainable practices in conformity with the principles of ISO 20121 event sustainability management. These efforts touched upon every social, environmental and economic activity, and were applied during the build-up and servicing of venues for conferences, exhibitions and events.
The organizers stood at the front lines in assisting Taiwan MICE venue management to take the initial steps towards sustainability. In that role, fresh approaches were developed. For example, to meet the social contribution component, they focused upon assisting under-privileged and disadvantaged groups.
In the area of occupational safety, they cultivated a new culture of work safety. In the realm of economics, they worked out better ways to enhance service and sustainable management. And in the environmental field, they applied their own environmental protection initiatives like clean-up campaigns and better environmental practices.
With all this work, we believe that NANGANG Hall 1 will long serve as a model for sustainable MICE venues.
