“The new version of 10,000 Actions builds on the success of this award winning programme, and is a great platform to share the actions our staff are taking for environmental sustainability and social responsibility. I have used 10,000 Actions to commit to actions I can take and I encourage all staff to log on, find out how they can make a difference and share their activity with their colleagues”
Professor James Thompson
Vice-President for Social Responsibility
About 10,000 Actions
In 2016, Impact Reporting supported The University of Manchester in launching 10,000 Actions, the largest environmental sustainability initiative in the higher education sector.
Running on a bespoke version of the Impact tool, it has captured over 27,000 staff actions that contribute to a more sustainable society.
An Impactful Partnership
Impact Reporting and The University of Manchester have a shared journey. The University, alongside Innovate UK, invested in Impact Reporting to explore new ways of reporting social impact and Corporate Social Responsibility.
Our research identified that social impact reporting was inconsistent and sporadic. There was a clear disparity between robust financial accounting and incomplete social impact measurement that failed to inform business strategy.
In response to this, Impact was designed to leverage the power of digital, removing the traditionally time-intensive task of generating data for annual reports by devolving input of the data to the end user.
