SYSTEMIQ is a different kind of company. Its purpose is to catalyse good disruptions in critical economic systems, with a current focus on land use/forestry, energy, and materials/circular economy. 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. 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. But, so far, most change has been incremental. We need to transform economic systems much faster to hit the targets and stop the degradation of natural resources.
What does SYSTEMIQ do?
SYSTEMIQ drives system change in clean energy, circular material solutions and sustainable land use. This means re-engineering our industries, re-networking our cities and regenerating the ecosystems around us. By addressing failures in these areas, SYSTEMIQ aims to unlock economic opportunities that benefit business, society, and the environment. Systemiq are a rapidly growing company. After only 4 years they have more than 180 people working across hubs & offices in Europe, Africa, Indonesia and Brazil.

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 have set out to achieve their mission through a unique portfolio of activities which include:
