Until a couple of days ago, I would have thought that such a situation
was impossible.  Then the NC Licence and CC Guidelines were walked
thru, to demonstrate how to do it.

How to do it is extremely  non-obvious, but is within the bounds of
botht eh NC Licence, and CC Guidelines on what the NC part
means/implies. [Step one is to grok how NC linced materail can be sold
at the retail level, by an organization.   Only after that does it
become possible to grok how a commercial can be acceptable use, under
an NC licence.]

Corrupt conduct is a virtue.
