SYSTEMIQ, an advisory, business building and investment company, has been announced as the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Knowledge Partner for Systems Initiatives. The announcement was made at the CE100 Acceleration Workshop today in Berlin.

SYSTEMIQ works to identify and create opportunities for system-level impact across energy, food and land use, the circular economy and the built environment. The company has already collaborated with the Foundation on the New Plastics Economy initiative, and a new research piece due for publication in November 2016. Further collaborations are in the pipeline.


This partnership builds on the Foundation’s longstanding collaboration with SYSTEMIQ’s founding partners Martin Stuchtey and Jeremy Oppenheim. Our joint work on the Towards the Circular Economy report series, Growth Within and Project MainStream initiatives established the economic rationale for the circular economy, placing it firmly on global business and policymaker agendas. We look forward to continuing our collaboration to identify and catalyse new circular economy opportunities that can move us towards the systemic shift our economy needs to work in the long term.

- Ellen MacArthur, founder, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation

Circular economy principles are pivotal to accelerating system level change and delivering superior economic, environmental and social outcomes. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is a disruptive thought leader within this space and we are looking forward to working with this team of good friends, to expand the knowledge frontier and create market leading opportunities within the circular economy. Our Knowledge Partnership represents one of the best opportunities to link circular economy pioneers, drive industrial innovation, mobilise smart capital and pioneer system level change, in Europe and the world.
