Certification story

Commercial Corporate Services, a UK-based business services company established in 1991, has achieved Planet Mark certification.

Operating sustainably is a necessity, not a luxury, for Commercial. That’s why Commercial has taken deliberate steps to ensure sustainability is self-fulfilling and progressive. From its low-emission delivery vehicles to award-winning employee engagement, sustainability infiltrates the entire business. Commercial is also committed to a sustainable and transparent supply chain, benchmarking its suppliers and products so buyers can make informed choices. 

Steve Malkin
Founder and CEO
Planet Mark
“Well done to Commercial on another year of certification. In a year beset by so many difficulties for so many people, it is imperative that sustainability does not fall off the radar. Commercial has a keen sense of the urgent change needed to save our planet, and this is reflected in this years’ results. This year has also been a time when many businesses have reassessed the way office life is conducted. Efficiency, sustainability and wellbeing have all been taken into greater consideration. Companies like Commercial are poised to lead the charge on the ongoing business services revolution.”

Nobody wants office products with hidden environmental or ethical costs. Companies in the office supplies space should embrace the opportunity presented by the world’s move to low carbon processes. As a supplier, there is an opportunity to set precedent on the solutions to continue office life in a sustainable way. Companies that embrace this opportunity stand to not only do well for the planet but by performance metrics, too.  

Future targets

Reduce carbon emissions by at least 2.5% each year

To recertify next year Commercial Corporate Services must reduce emissions by 2.5%.

Aim to reduce carbon emissions by 5% each year

A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.

Reach net zero carbon by 2028

Commercial Corporate Services has made a public commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2028.
