Social value is incredibly important to us. We want to make sure that we are taking real and tangible action to ensure we are adding social value in everything we do.


Measuring our impact

The starting point is to measure the value we add to society – meaning we can then look at ways to increase it. We analyse our social and local economic value impact annually using an independent audit. This is based on the National TOMs methodology to quantify our impact on jobs, innovation, diversity, the environment and personal development.

Delivering social impact throughout our engagements

For every engagement we undertake, we work with our clients to understand the areas of social value which matter to them most and agree discrete contract specific commitments which go above and beyond our existing initiatives to deliver demonstratable value for each contract.

For our government clients, we will work to agree which themes and Model Assessment Criteria to focus those commitments on and then outline a detailed action plan. We report upon progress in achieving those commitments at regular points in time as part of our regular reporting information.

Our initiatives


Social value days

As part of our commitment, all employees get two fully paid social value days per year to volunteer, enabling them to support a charitable or community organisation of their choice (equivalent to 2,500 hours/year).   


Team volunteering events

Coordinating team social value days - for example, hosting two volunteering events in 2023 with the Heart of England Forest. The activities included replanting trees and preparing areas for new tree planting, with 20 team members participating on each day.



Through our environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives, Jumar has achieved carbon neutrality and is actively working towards becoming carbon-negative. Our environmental policies are underpinned by our ISO14001 accreditation and in-depth Carbon Reduction Plan (CRP). We reduce carbon emissions where possible & offset where not.

We are also a member of, and our CDIO is a member of the European Advisory Board, in recognition of our commitments and expertise in this area, and we actively share this knowledge and best practice with our clients and supply chain.  We have developed our Sustainability by Design model which is adopted across all our engagements.  This ensures we consider sustainability when making all technology choices, promote reuse wherever feasible, and use our knowledge to translate the impact of choices to our clients, enabling sustainability-informed decisions.
