Celebrating Climate Action Case Study: Camden Recycling Rewards 

Our case study on climate action in Camden this month is on Camden Recycling Rewards - a digital engagement programme which rewards residents for reducing the amount they waste, reusing what they can and recycling more. It works in conjunction with Jump.  Residents commit to green actions and earn ‘Green Points’ for each action they complete.

The scheme has helped 6,142 residents reduce carbon emissions in Camden, with an estimated 149,263kg of carbon avoided since June 2019.

In addition, every year £3,000 is donated to local charities and community groups on behalf of the communities that earn the most Green Points per person.
