Partnering and Added Value
We achieve more when we work together
What's your why?
Our flagship CSR Days energise, engage and empower people to drive sustainability in their own organisations. We held our first event in 2006, focusing on green issues. Since then, the scope has broadened to cover the full spectrum of environmental, ethical and social sustainability.
Attracting more than 250 delegates, our CSR Days involve high-profile keynote speakers who challenge the audience and stimulate new ways of thinking. Then expert-led roundtable sessions drill down into the ‘nuts-and-bolts’ of specific applications such as supply chain management, ethical trading and fleet management.
Our next event will be headlined by Wayne Hemingway and Ed Gilespie on 28 June 2018.
Traditionally, customers specify sustainability criteria and look for suppliers with the best fit. But this model is reversed at Commercial.
We advise on ways to enhance sustainability strategies by improving implementation and uptake. It results in customers exceeding targets, and challenging themselves to achieve more.
