Leveraging technology to meet sustainability and community goals

In partnership with HP

Business and government leaders believe technology is key to expanding economic opportunity.

In late 2023, in collaboration with HP, Oxford Economics conducted a survey to better understand how businesses and governments globally are working to meet sustainability and community goals.

Oxford Economics surveyed 1,032 business executives and government officials from 10 countries across multiple sectors to understand their approach to reaching community goals, from improving sustainable practices to closing the digital divide. Our research found that with mutual trust between businesses and governments and increased accessibility to advanced technologies, such as AI, organizations can better use technology to achieve community initiatives. Those that use these technologies with intention are reaping benefits beyond meeting their community goals—including increased revenue, improved employee satisfaction, and new market expansion.
