15The Hatfields Sustainability Centre
Since opening 15Hatfields in 2008, the aim has been to help companies organize events that not only inspire, but also educate and support them in their own sustainability journey. All activities on site are based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, in particular: Sustainable Cities and Communities, Responsible Consumption and Production, and Climate Action. By prioritizing reducing food waste, eradicating single-use plastics and investing in renewable energy, 15Hatfields became the first Platinum ECOsmart accredited venue in the UK.
