Corporate Digital Responsibility (CDR) outlines a set of responsibilities that any organisation should consider in helping achieve a better balance of the utilisation of digital technologies for the benefit of all in society.
It is a recognition that the organisations driving forward the advancement of technology, and those that leverage technology to engage and provide services to the citizen, have a responsibility to do so in a manner that is fundamentally leading us toward a positive future.
"CDR is a fusion of ethical considerations at the individual and societal level, with recognition that technological change can spawn both utopian and dystopian futures. CDR seeks to find the balance, and guide our progress toward a technological landscape that works for us all."
This site aggregates and builds our initial thinking dating back to 2017, then further links other related thought leadership and research, and connecting other initiatives around digitalisation and sustainability with similar goals, most significantly of which is the work we see currently happening in Germany.
In 2017, the term Corporate Digital Responsibility was barely known or present on the internet. Today many organisations, and even governments, are referring to it, albeit each with slightly different definitions. Our aim is to help to aggregate, consolidate and evolve.
