We look for leverage points within systems to create maximum impact.
As an organization striving for systems change, we are working to transition the existing global economy as rapidly as possible by working with influential decision-makers to drive sustainability stewardship and organizational change. At the same time, we are working to build parallel systems based on principles that are fundamentally different to the current one, in the form of disruptive new ventures and pilots of new governance and finance models.

Using systems thinking to tackle complex sustainability challenges
The social and environmental problems resulting from our economic system can often feel independent from one another. At Metabolic, we take an integrated view of these issues – from climate change and biodiversity loss to human health and economic stagnation – acknowledging that many of these challenges are inextricably linked, and stem from a few key root causes.
We approach all of our work from a systems perspective. Mapping systems reveals leverage points: places in a system where one small change can create big changes across the entire system. These insights help us create impactful projects, in which we can put interventions into practice so they can scale up and generate results.
To accelerate global systems change, we must collectively re-imagine and re-design our systems and institutions. Metabolic’s focus is on six key transitions.
