Jump achieves 3 million positive actions

3 million positive actions

Our 2019 roundup

Participants in Jump’s engagement programmes have achieved a record-breaking 3 million positive actions for sustainability and wellbeing. This has resulted in over 765 tonnes of avoided CO2 emissions.

Through activities such as ‘Switch Off’ almost 145,000 kWh of energy has been saved. Alongside this, over 3.5 million sustainable travel miles have been logged through activities that encourage individuals to walk, cycle or take public transport.

Positive actions with our NHS Trusts

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT), one of Jump’s largest employee-focused clients, has avoided over 30 tonnes of CO2. MFT was also shortlisted as a finalist for edie’s Sustainability Leaders Awards 2020 in the Employee Engagement and Behaviour Change Initiative of the Year category.

Claire Igoe, Head of Environmental Sustainability at MFT, says “it’s fantastic that our workforce has already achieved so many positive actions. Green Rewards is the perfect opportunity to empower employees to make a positive difference, and I’m delighted we’ve been shortlisted in the edie awards.”

Our councils

Across 20 local authority areas, more than 60,000 households have engaged in positive waste and recycling behaviours. This has been achieved through Jump’s resident programmes, from Bexley and Camden in London to Warwickshire in the Midlands and St Helens in the North West. These behaviours focus on activities such as ‘Food Waste Challenge’ and ‘Slim Your Bin’.

Our universities

Three Jump universities are ranked in the top 12 of the highly regarded People & Planet University League. This includes the University of Bristol, Nottingham Trent University and Swansea University. The University of Bristol was the first in the UK to declare a Climate Emergency. Its ‘Be the Change’ programme is unique and engages both students and staff. Similarly Anglia Ruskin University and Nottingham Trent University have rolled-out their programmes to include students as well as staff for the current academic year.

Positive actions ahead of 2020

Looking to the year ahead, Jump is expanding into new sectors and is this month launching its first manufacturing sector programme with ASM Assembly Systems. Whilst in the local authority sector, two new councils have recently signed up with Jump for employee engagement programmes, Charnwood Borough Council and the London Borough of Lambeth. With its offices based in Lambeth, Jump’s new programme with its home council is aiming to develop an internal community of ‘Net Zero Heroes’.

Graham Simmonds, Chief Executive at Jump, says: “More and more of our clients are declaring a climate emergency which is fantastic to see and we are incredibly excited for the year ahead.

“We are constantly developing our technology and approach for our clients to engage as many people as possible, to deliver real, tangible impact.”

Since joining Jump fresh out of university back in 2013 I’ve seen many changes in the way we communicate – both as a company and more widely within the sustainability industry. The current shift of sustainability to the mainstream is accelerating at a pace and it’s exciting to be part of this step change.  The insight I get from individual participants in our client programmes is invaluable as it helps me figure out the best way to get our messages across.

My team and I use digital communications to recognise individual and team success, providing information in a fun, meaningful way that encourages people to take action. It’s about creating a feedback loop where people see that their actions are having an impact and this is very powerful in creating positive change within an organisation.

Chief Executive

Graham Simmonds

As CEO of Jump I lead a talented team of professionals committed to sustainability and wellness.  For much of my 35 year career I’ve been immersed in environmental issues, particularly how to engage people in practical action.  Previously I built Trees for Cities from start-up to a global, award-winning charity as its founding chief executive, and I loved developing new initiatives such as The Edible Playground and the Million Trees Campaign.  

In 2011 I set up Jump as I felt organisations large and small want to motivate action amongst their people around wellbeing and the planet, and a professional team dedicated to this purpose would help them accelerate their journey.  I’m also proud to chair the Reward Gateway Foundation which supports organisations and projects that address inequality and disadvantage, with the ultimate mission of making the world a better, fairer, safer and more equal place to work.
