Commercial wins Lotus Sustainability Award

Commercial is proud to announce that it has won a prestigious Lotus Sustainability Award, which will be presented on 27 June at a ceremony in London.

Commercial has been taking positive action to reduce emissions for nearly 12 years. During that time it has achieved significant reduction in its carbon footprint, adopting sustainable working practices including the introduction of a hydrogen-fuelled fleet and the use of renewable energy.

The business has moved from 73 tonnes of CO2/£m turnover in 2006 to 20 tonnes of CO2/£m turnover in 2018. This means that for every £1m of turnover gained in 2018 it emitted 73% less carbon compared to 2006.

“Commercial has made sustainability part of their DNA, which is the reason they won a Lotus Award,” explains James Murphy, founder and CEO of Ei, parent company of the Lotus Awards.

“I was also inspired by Al Gore, and I believe that business has perhaps the greatest opportunity to change the future of our planet. Commercial Group is leading the way: Challenge, Champion, Change is exactly how we should be approaching sustainability.”
