Emerson Elemental

We envision a world where humanity and nature live in healthy harmony

By collaborating with credible, passionate and committed Doers - leaders who think boldly - we seek to transform markets, scale technologies, and revolutionize policies. We support radical remedies of the commons designed to address nature's tragedies of the commons. By applying differentiated solutions to the high value problems that confront both humanity and nature, our intention is to accelerate change in a timeframe that is consequential to communities everywhere.

Elemental is Emerson Collective's platform for applying systems level, design thinking to the multifaceted environmental challenges of our time, using every tool and talent we can avail.

We understand how threats to our natural world are deeply interwoven with societal challenges—inequity, polarity, economic instability, and inaccessibility to technology. As we prioritize our problem-solving through a lens of justice and societal progress, we strengthen humanity.

In transitioning to a more equitable society, we endeavor to move towards a new "social compact". Enabling innovation to be inclusive for economic opportunity ensures our communities benefit and increasingly become the focal point of change. Just as universal access to the innovation of electricity transformed all spheres of life in the 20th century, equitable diffusion of technology and sustainable modernization will lift up entire communities.

We'll achieve this by investing in the world's Doers—thinkers, leaders, and innovators with an entrepreneurial spirit, deep acumen, and relentless passion to solve high value problems.

We have the power to intentionally heal and strengthen the relationship between ourselves and nature, to live in the world we desire.
