We only have one planet and we should all be working to protect it. As one of London's most sustainable venues, we have an unrelenting commitment to sustainable causes, with a pioneering spirit for a more conscious future at the core of our events venue. Since our inception in 2008, sustainability has been woven into the fabric of our eco-friendly venue. Each element is chosen with the environment in mind, including our cushions made from recycled airline seatbelts! In 2021, we became the first Platinum ECOsmart accredited venue in the UK due to our 'outstanding approach' to environmental sustainability standards. We have also been listed as a ‘Gold’ status venue in the Green Tourism certification program since 2016.
15Hatfields' sustainable approach
Every member of our team is passionate about playing their part to meet the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, three of which sit at the core of each and every business decision we make. Campaigning for global change, we are committed to supporting this blueprint that seeks to tackle the biggest environmental crises by 2030.
Over the years at 15Hatfields, our efforts have focused on ensuring our cities and communities are sustainable, making sure we consume and produce responsibly and above all, playing our part to combat climate change.
Sustainable cities and communities
Responsible production and consumption
Everyone deserves to live in an environment that is inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. We strongly believe that working as a community with the businesses around us in London's Southbank and neighbouring areas creates a bigger force for change. That’s why our like-minded partners are meticulously chosen, and we continue to advocate supporting local wherever possible.

Why sustainability is particularly important in events
We only have one planet and we should all be working to protect it. The events industry alone produces 1.2 billion kg of CO2e emissions every year, as well as large amounts of waste from catering, event design and gifting.
We understand the need for events to bring people together and drive business. Our detailed sustainable venue hire processes ensure your event can still make an impression, without leaving a lasting footprint on the world.
