Why Grammarly is telling me that the below sentence has a mistake?

See example:

For that reason, individual prosperity or organizational competitiveness can't reach the level, intensity and duration that they could; that they should, in order to guarantee a sustainability own contribution-based but not on external circumstances.

Who does the pronoun "they" refer to?  If you are using the pronoun to refer to "individual prosperity or organizational competitiveness," it is very awkward.  If they can't, then you do not say they could in the next breath.  This is just two forms of the same word.  That is the same as saying, "He did not run and he ran."  You can say, "They can't, but they should." 


The semicolon is misused.  I am unable to help you fix any more of the sentence, because everything after the last comma makes no sense to me at all.
