Tool for responsible tech

Responsible tech

Responsible tech means applying an ethical approach when developing, using, and distributing new technology. It also means contributing to an environmentally, socially and economically sustainable society.

This is a tool for a guided self-assessment. You will be asked a series of questions that will help you take a more responsible approach to your work.

At the end of the self-assessment, the tool will provide you with a list of concrete actions. You can use the tool repeatedly in the course of your tech development work.

Single user access

The tool is designed by the Swedish government Committee for Technological Innovation and Ethics (Komet). A description of the theoretical platform and methodology is available here (in Swedish)

The Committee for Technological Innovation and Ethics (Komet) was established by the Swedish Government in 2018 and was active until 2022. Its mission was to help the Government to identify policy challenges, contribute to reducing uncertainty surrounding existing regulations, and accelerate policy development linked to new technologies.
