Certificazione ISO 20121

The Tones on the Stones Foundation has adopted a sustainable management system in relation to the international standard ISO 20121 “sustainable events”, obtaining certification by Bureau Veritas in July 2020.

The sustainable development policy provides for the evaluation of the economic, social and environmental impacts of the event.

Tones on the Stones intends to involve all its stakeholders in this virtuous path to amplify the results for the benefit of all.

The drafting of the sustainable development policy document and sharing it with all stakeholders demonstrates the commitment to the application of sustainable development principles in the management activities of the 2021 season.

The project, supported and financed by the Chamber of Commerce, is part of the Amalake path for the positioning of the destination “Lake Maggiore and its valleys” with the intent to qualify the offer through the development of a network of services that generate the birth of new business initiatives.
