Hakkasan Group's Green Initiative
This week, Hakkasan Group and resident DJ, Calvin Harris, announced a partnership to reduce its carbon footprint in nightclubs and restaurants around the globe. Joining in the worldwide fight to reduce pollution, Hakkasan Group has pledged to eliminate consumption of single use plastic straws in each of its properties, effective immediately. This choice to better the environment came after Harris’ photographer, Conor McDonnell, shared his first-hand experience in the harmfulness of plastics while working with the World Wildlife Fund. Moved by the news, Hakkasan Group CEO Nick McCabe was quoted saying “We’re incredibly proud to partner with Calvin on this initiative to reduce our consumption of single use plastics.” Becoming another industry leading company to embrace this movement, Hakkasan Group and Calvin Harris hope it will inspire others to reduce their emissions output.
