How technology can help us on the journey to Sustainable Development Goals
In September 2015, the 193 member states of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development. A vision of how to transform our world by eradicating poverty and ensuring a transition to sustainable development.
At the heart of the 2030 Agenda are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They cover developmental challenges in all countries, such as climate, biodiversity, energy, water, poverty, gender equality, economic prosperity, peace, agriculture and education.
At TeamEQ we are firmly committed to the aspirations of the 2030 Agenda. We know that technology which helps to eliminate barriers and put people at the center of decision making will be an essential tool to reach those goals. The sustainable economic growth of business will be based on prioritizing the health and well-being of employees, as well as supporting aspects like diversity and equality in the workplace.
In this article, we’ll focus on how TeamEQ’s team intelligence analytics platform can help our clients to reach three of the specific SDG goals from Agenda 2030:
SDG 8: Decent work and economic growth
At TeamEQ we value transparency and the democratization of information as an essential tool to achieve a better way of working, where human development is essential.
