This month, we’ve been looking at venues who take sustainability seriously. Read the venue profile about 15Hatfields in London below:
Named as one of the most sustainable conference venues in the UK, 15Hatfields is stylish, contemporary and intimate, with a great location near to London’s South Bank. With its versatile spaces it can accommodate events from 2-550 delegates.
A 10 minute walk from Waterloo tube station, and also within close distance of Southwark and Blackfriars stations. It is quite hidden away but in a really nice location near to South Bank.
First impression was great. Everything is made from recycled/reused materials; the wall in reception is made from offcut paving slabs, cushions are made from old seatbelts, the front reception desk, along with a coffee and juice bar, are both made from recycled bottles of Lenor.
A very well-lit and modern venue, 15Hatfields has everything you need for a successful event. It was completely refurbished in 2008 to make sure that everything within the venue is made from sustainable materials.
The main meeting rooms even boast sustainable names; Earth, Sustain, Air, Renew, Water, Fire and Energy. The venue can accommodate up to 140 for a meeting, 300 theatre style, and up to 550 for standing reception. Some of the rooms can also be joined together to create a larger space.
There is free unlimited Wi-Fi available throughout the venue – we’re told it’s one of the best connections in London!
All food is locally sourced through a sustainable caterer and is served in meeting and syndicate rooms. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is available, with menus ranging from informal lunches to more formal dining.
Sustainability is at the heart of everything this venues does, including everything from the carpet to the coffee. As well as some of the factors already mentioned, just some of the measures this venue takes to be environmentally friendly include:
- The poseur tables and bar top are made from recycled yoghurt pots
- Solar panels on the roof provide over 90 % of the hot water used in the venue
- The carpet is made from goats’ hair with a natural rubber backing, making them fully compostable
- Water is bottled on-site using UV filtration system, with re-usable glass bottles
- Tea is fairtrade and coffee is rainforest alliance and freshly ground on-site
- Food waste is broken down into compost pellets which are donated locally
- Pens are made from recycled CD cases and coasters are made from recycled tyres
The team were very friendly and knowledgeable.
