Ben joined SYSTEMIQ from industry, after spending ten years embedding and implementing sustainability programmes inside multinational energy companies (Shell and BG Group) and their subsidiaries in Africa, Central Asia, Latin America and Australia. This experience of driving change and managing front-line sustainability risks in industry, combined with his background in environmental science and strategy consulting, provide a foundation for Ben’s work as a consultant and project manager at SYSTEMIQ.

At SYSTEMIQ, Ben works across the circular economy and energy platforms and in his first year at SYSTEMIQ he has worked with diverse clients including the Ellen Macarthur Foundation, the United Nations International Resource Panel and large multinational companies in the packaging and chemicals industries. He also manages SYSTEMIQ’s growing work programme on plastics, which aims to make a contribution to the critical transition towards a plastic packaging industry that is more circular, less wasteful, and does not pollute the environment and oceans with plastic.
