Our Why

The Innovation Imperative

Long-term trends of population growth and urbanisation, together with existing pressures on planetary resources require a radical shift in resource efficiency. Simultaneously, the current pandemic shows the need for greater preparation for known global risks.

  • We currently consume resources at x1.75 times the rate the Earth can replenish them

  • Population expected to grow 25% to almost 10 billion in the next 30 years

  • Urban populations in developing economies expected to increase 78% in the next 30 years, with the attendant increase in resource consumption per person


There is a self-evident imperative to accelerate innovation, as well as a vast commercial opportunity presented by addressing our most pressing challenges.
