Data in the trend for climate action

Climate Action

The role of data in the trend for climate action is essential. As an individual it can often be overwhelming to digest data such as; how much energy we use, how we travel, the food we purchase, and how this relates to the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs), alongside  behavioural decisions.

The ability to empower individuals relies on the ability to make climate data accessible, relevant and with a tangible result.

Climate Action and the SDGs

Data philanthropy has seen an increase across sectors. Organisations such as Data for Climate Action and UN Global Pulse are enabled by philanthropic projects which encourage people to explore creative solutions to climate change.

A recent report led by Jeffrey Sachs, indicates that achieving the SDGs “requires deep, structural changes across all sectors of society.” The ties between digital technologies and accessible data underpin this transition from objective to action. The aim of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data also supports this move towards data being used more openly, effectively, and efficiently.

How can data be used for climate action?

Jump is providing solutions to the difficulties of making data accessible, relevant and tangible. A dynamic app and online platform allows users to monitor their environmental impact in real-time through a personal contribution dashboard. Moreover, the platform intuitively converts abstract data metrics, such as carbon emissions or kWh saved into more tangible concepts.

Climate action success

Since Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) launched its Jump programme, colleagues have logged almost 18,000 miles of active travel; saved enough electricity to power 1,186 homes for a day; and recorded three years of meat free days.

University of Reading staff have avoided over 87 tonnes of CO2 emissions during the first year of their programme.

Nottingham Trent University (NTU) have recently relaunched their Jump programme to include its 30,000 students. They have completed an impressive 23,000 positive actions to improve sustainability and wellbeing since its launch.

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.

I am Chief Customer Officer of SumoSalad, former Chief Marketing Officer at RELX: Risk & Analytics and Founder of RAW Energy. Having worked in publishing for 20 years, living through the first phases of the digital revolution, I’m used to disruption, uncertainty and transformation. But through all of this, my belief in putting the customer at the heart of an organisation by leveraging data analytics has helped multiple brands innovate, evolve and transform. 

I’m a huge advocate for promoting wellness in the workplace which is central to our Jump mission, and created the award-winning RBI Living Well programme. Through my RAW Energy platform, I support business and community leaders to be more resilient, more authentic and more focused on wellbeing.  A regular contributor to marketing, customer experience and wellness forums, I’ve written three books including Success without Stress: How to Prevent Burnout and Build Resilience for Optimal Health & Performance.

I helped Graham set up Jump in 2011 and it’s great to be involved in such a dynamic, growing business where I can apply my specialism in corporate compliance to ensure we are meeting our statutory and financial obligations.  I am an associate of the Association of International Accountants (for whom I also act as a quality advisor) and a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries & Administrators. 

Alongside Jump, I’m a director of Cornhill Group, a corporate service business in London advising the boards of businesses in a wide variety of sectors including shipping, energy, media and aviation, and I’m also a director of a global energy trader.

Alongside Jump, I’ve been helping clients get their message across for over 30 years,
most recently as chief executive of Richmond & Towers, the longest
established public relations consultancy in the UK.  A Chartered Marketer,
I’m increasingly helping clients frame their message around sustainability,
particularly in food, waste and energy. The Guardian once described me as being
the “evil genius who got us all hooked on avocados”, a claim I don’t deny.

Since helping Graham get Jump set up in 2011 I’ve enjoyed communicating about a
subject where there is a great willingness among companies and individuals to
do the right thing,  but understanding what practical action to take isn’t
always obvious.

Chief Executive

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.
