In the early hours of August 1888 — a woman changed our lives forever.

On that day, Cäcilie Bertha Benz went on the first long-distance journey in an automobile and proved to the world that this new invention had the potential to change everything.

Cäcilie embodies our mission: craft a world where human activity and planet thrive together.

The Latin term systēma embodies our vision: climate action by virtue of economic growth.

Our Purpose - zero emission technologies

“Only one person remained with me in the small ship of life when it seemed destined to sink. That was my wife. Bravely and resolutely, she set hew sails of hope.” Carl Benz Memoirs

To achieve the unthinkable, the unimaginable, and the inconceivable — we need hope.

Hope that our efforts are not meaningless, but certainty instead that our actions change worlds.

Just as Cäcilie Bertha Benz once laid the foundation which ensured the future of the automobile, it is now our purpose to lay the foundation which ensures the future of zero-emission technologies.

Our values — to transform the sense of what is possible

For years, breaking the four-minute mile barrier was known to be impossible for the human body. Yet, when Roger Bannister broke through this previously impenetrable track-and-field barrier on May 6, 1954, he changed the game — the unreachable became the new benchmark.

To transform the sense of what is possible and give rise to a new benchmark — a world where human activity and planet thrive together — we build upon our values:

Climate action
Affordable clean energy
Sustainable consumption and production
Stakeholder value creation

We are Cēcilie

a new economic system to finance, ensure safe passage and give hope to a liveable and sustainable future for all.
