About the company

SYSTEMIQ’s purpose is to catalyse good disruptions in critical economic systems. These disruptions are not only vital to the future of humanity and our planet: they also open up immense opportunities for the businesses that drive them. Science shows that our current systems for food, energy, industry, transport and cities are inefficient and largely unsustainable. Their social and environmental costs run into trillions of dollars. We must change our local and global economic systems fundamentally and fast to avoid human and planetary collapse. The UN Global Goals and the Paris Agreement have set the targets we must reach to protect the earth and make sure everyone in the growing global population has a chance to prosper. Progress is being made. Businesses increasingly recognise the value in driving sustainable change. But, so far, most of this change has been incremental. We need to transform economic systems much faster to hit the UN targets and stop the degradation of natural resources. SYSTEMIQ was launched in 2016 to accelerate these urgent transformations.

SYSTEMIQ is an organisation driving system change in clean energy, circular material solutions and sustainable land use. By addressing failures in these areas, SYSTEMIQ aims to unlock economic opportunities that benefit business, society and the environment.

We connect the right people, ideas, technologies, and capital to transform economic systems. We do this through five activities:

1.   Convene and support coalitions of leaders to shape policies and business strategies that will rapidly transform economic activity.

2.   Work with companies that want to be pioneers in and drivers of change towards more sustainable systems.

3.   Co-create and incubate the market solutions most likely to build regenerative economic systems.

4.   Invest our own venture capital and expertise in opportunities with the biggest potential to drive rapid system change.

5.   Direct larger pools of capital into regenerative economic systems, so that these scale and multiply.

In order to deliver in these areas, we recruit and develop distinctive and varied individuals who strive to achieve our mission, challenge the status quo and act as change leaders.
