On 11 January 15Hatfields was awarded Greengage's prestigious new Positive Impact title, for our relentless determination to champion change in the events sector. In particular, our painstaking work to eradicate palm oil from our central London venue.
As part of our commitment to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, we've spent three years working to remove the versatile oil, which is present in so many foods, consumables and cleaning products. In April 2023 we hosted our first palm oil free event – a glitzy awards dinner for 150 people.
15Hatfields’ Deputy General Manager, Joe Harris, said: “We are delighted that our continued efforts to create a blueprint for the events sector to follow has received special industry recognition. This is an award that is particularly special as every member of our team is passionate about making events more sustainable and has played a key role in making this possible. Our work never stops, and we are excited to be continuing our efforts to drive positive industry change.”
The Positive Impact award follows hot on the heels of 15Hatfields' General Manager, Warren Campbell, achieving a place in micebook’s Power 50 Green Champions. You can learn all about our environmental initiatives in the sustainability hub and check out our fine dining page for a preview of our deliciously palm oil free offering.
