The team at DIGIT stated that: “As consumers become increasingly socially-conscious, ‘tech for good’ is now one of the most prescient topics in the global technology sector.
For many consumers, businesses are expected to do more than just deliver services or products, they’re expected to deliver positive outcomes for society and the planet, and many consumers are more supportive of brands with which they share common values.
Technology is being used to tackle some of the planet’s toughest challenges, including climate change, poverty and hunger – and it’s big business. According to Tech Nation, ‘tech for social good’ companies were worth £2.3 billion in 2018 and boasted a total turnover of £732 million.”
The list, features companies offering diverse and innovative solutions across a wide range of sectors, includes: Good Loop, Talking Medicines, Sustainability, Neatebox and MoneyMatrix.
