FightBack Manifesto

Together, we commit to overcome market boundaries, to collaborate across private, public, and non-profit sectors, and to harness our existing assets. We are committed to using the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement as our North Star as we create a ‘new normal’ based on sustainable, regenerative, and inclusive models that unlock new value.

Our purpose

We are leaders in corporations, governments, NGO’s, impactful start-ups, and academic institutions who believe that global challenges are also a window of opportunity to scale new sustainable solutions rapidly. We thrive to enable action and impact.

We break existing siloes and harness a wide range of innovative forces with an entrepreneurial mindset. We foster a community to exchange best practices beyond sectors and industries. Together we create effective responses to the world’s most pressing issues.

Our system is ill-equipped

to confront the massive challenges in climate and health in our increasingly interdependent world. We are too reliant on ineffective and wasteful linear models. Our challenges need to be solved within a tight timeframe which requires unprecedented collaboration, taking action on bold ideas, and the intrinsic motivation to demand and act on the highest standard of living. 

Today’s challenges are too big to be solved by one player alone 

but through collaboration, we can transform industries, moving away from a take-make-and-dispose model to become regenerative, sustainable, effective, and resilient. We combine and utilise our mutual assets in the form of physical business assets, time, network, and creativity with an entrepreneurial mindset.

Together, we commit to acting for the long-term, moving beyond legislation periods and profit-and-loss-reviews. We follow a solution-driven approach combining collaboration, innovation, and sustainable impact models based on a strong vision of a prospering future.

We pledge

to overcome market boundaries, to collaborate across private, public, and non-profit sectors, and to harness our existing assets. We are committed to using the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement as our North Star as we create a ‘new normal’ based on sustainable, regenerative, and inclusive models that unlock new value.

We are forward thinking leaders striving to create an impact…
