Why are we interested in the future of business?
New Zealand businesses are rethinking their role, purpose and how they operate in response to global trends such as climate change, technology change and demographic change. New Zealand’s unique characteristics, strengths and enduring challenges are also influencing this shift.
There are opportunities and implications for future productivity and wellbeing outcomes for New Zealanders. There may be a role for government to help ensure the future outcomes that businesses and New Zealanders more broadly want to achieve, are aligned.
What aspects of the future of business does the Briefing focus on?
This Briefing explores two less well-known areas of business change – growth of purpose-led business and use of blockchain technology, both with implications for future productivity and wellbeing of all New Zealanders.
Why we are consulting
We are keen to hear directly from New Zealanders about the content of this draft Briefing. Your feedback will help us to finalise the Briefing for submission to Parliament.
The final Long-term Insights Briefing will be presented to the House of Representatives by the end of 2022.
