Managing Partner and Co-Founder, Systemiq

Jeremy Oppenheim

An economist, business adviser and convener of coalitions, Jeremy is driven by one simple idea: to tackle the big challenges of our times requires urgent, structural change to our economic systems.

This requires new levels of collaboration across business, government and civil society, which Jeremy drives through his roles as Global Principal of the Food and Land Use Commission (FOLU), a partnership committed to transforming the way we produce food and use land; and as Chair of the Blended Finance Taskforce, a consortium of public and private actors who mobilise capital to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Jeremy is lead author of the “Better Growth, Better Climate” report of the New Climate Economy project and the “Better Business, Better World” report of the Business & Sustainable Development Commission. He is a member of the National Food Advisory Panel for England and Chair of the non-profit, Global Action Plan. Previously, Jeremy spent more than 20 years at McKinsey, developing and leading its Sustainability and Resource Productivity Practice. A former Senior Economist from the World Bank (1988-1993), he holds a first-class degree from Cambridge University in Law and Economics (1984) and a Masters’ Degree in Public Administration (1986) from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

In 2016, Jeremy co-founded SYSTEMIQ, a B-Corporation dedicated to accelerating delivery of the Paris Agreement and UN Sustainable Development Goals by transforming markets, business models and asset classes in three economic systems: land-use/nature, clean energy and materials (especially plastics). With more than 200 people in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Indonesia and Brazil, SYSTEMIQ combines cutting-edge research with corporate strategy advice, policy insights and high-impact, hands-on projects.  SYSTEMIQ manages a focused pool of disruptive capital from mission-aligned investors and works globally and locally to help partners anticipate, shape and create value in the new economy.
