Our Ambitions for New Zealand
Delivering on our purpose requires the delivery of exceptional science and research spanning a wide array of scientific disciplines. Our four ambitions are designed to present our science and research in an approachable and meaningful way for all New Zealanders to engage with.
Our science contributes to a number of National Goals that are managed by other organisations. Where relevant we have highlighted some of these goals on the following pages as a broader national context for our science and research.
As the Crown Research Institute (CRI) for our biodiversity, biosecurity, land and environment, Manaaki Whenua supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. To highlight this we have indicated the Sustainable Development Goals that our research and business activities support in the following sections.
