There are calls for New Zealand to be looking towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development goal when developing new technology.
NZTech chief executive Graeme Muller has just returned from major global tech conferences in the Netherlands and also met Dutch government leaders.
He explained to Kate Hawkesby the goals were about making the world a healthier and safer place for people to live in.
“There are seventeen high level goals about making the world a better place by 2030. Things like zero poverty, addressing food shortages and to ensure everyone has clean water.
“We should consider these when we are launching new technology.”
