Business services company Commercial has won a 2018 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Sustainable Development category.
The award recognises Commercial’s business success and its achievements in social and environmental sustainability.
Judges described Commercial as a ‘sector leader’ in sustainability, citing multiple schemes to reduce energy consumption and emissions at its offices in Cheltenham, London and Leeds.
These include a delivery ﬂeet with hydrogen-enabled and electric vehicles; reverse logistics recycling; and the use of photovoltaic panels to provide power for its offices, with additional requirements met by renewable sources.
Judges were also impressed by Commercial’s process innovations to maximise waste reuse and recycling, by its employee engagement and by its CSR Days, which aim to embed sustainability in customer and supplier businesses.
