After a successful pilot of the JUMP sustainability engagement programme by the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), the bank is rolling it out across the UK and Ireland.

RBS piloted JUMP in 2016 for 70 teams in a range of workplace locations including branches, offices and cash centres. In its Annual Report and Accounts 2016, the Bank reported that in the year 'colleagues logged over 2,500 activities to reduce our environmental impact via our app JUMP'.

JUMP is a programme operated by specialist provider Green Rewards. It motivates RBS colleagues to practise sustainability at work, including energy saving, recycling and less polluting travel. At the heart of the digital programme is competition, with colleagues organised into teams based on their department and location. There are leader boards showing which teams and individuals are performing best. Each month there are prizes for top performers including M&S, iTunes and other high street vouchers.

Participation by RBS staff throughout the pilot was at 80%, which in turn led to significant savings. Highlights were 5% average electricity reduction in pilot locations and over 500,000 disposable cups saved. RBS is forecasting savings of £3 million from energy alone as JUMP is scaled up to cover all of the UK and Ireland.

Mike Lynch, Sustainable Workplace Culture Manager at RBS, said: “Colleagues can earn points for their team for simple actions like switching off electrical equipment, reporting leaks, travelling sustainably and encouraging others to get involved.”

RBS sourced JUMP through the Innovation Gateway platform. Henry Majed, Partnerships Director for the Innovation Gateway, says: “JUMP is another great example of how corporations can work in partnership to source innovative solutions that achieve their commercial and environmental targets.”

Graham Simmonds, MD of Green Rewards, said: “Our vision for JUMP was always to use the collective actions of people in the workplace to magnify the impact, be it energy saving or less waste sent to landfill. We’re constantly developing our technology to make the experience as easy and motivating as possible.”
