Jump (Green Rewards) insight seminar on practical engagement in sustainability and wellbeing

Key discussion topics: Plastic Waste, Sustainable Development Goals, Technology 

On May 10th 2018, Green Rewards will host its annual insight seminar at the iconic October Gallery near London’s Russel Square. The event will host a range of speakers, broken into two panel discussions and will end with a launch of Green Rewards’ new global product, followed by drinks and canapés. 

The first panel will be chaired by Amanda Carpenter from the Legal Sustainability Alliance and will discuss “Building the business case for engagement”. Provisional speakers include representatives from Barclays, the University of Strathclyde and the London Borough of Bexley. 

The second panel will be chaired by Henry Majed from the Innovation Gateway and will focus on “Exploiting technology to embed behaviour change”. Speakers include Mike Lynch from RBS, who will discuss how RBS tackled plastic waste and encouraged colleagues to reduce their plastic use through Jump, including over 500,000 disposable cups saved.

The panel will also include Neil Smith from Bournemouth University who will discuss how Jump enabled the University to engage staff in sustainable and wellbeing behaviours and embed the Sustainable Development Goals into their sustainability strategy. Matthew de Villiers from Greenstone will address the importance of capturing data, by discussing how aggregate data can be fed back to employees to generate sustainable and long-lasting behaviour change.

The seminar looks to be a topical and engaging discussion, and we look forward to welcoming all our guests on the day.

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.
