About us

Responsible Computing™ is a membership consortium that provides a framework for setting responsible corporate policies. We help our members apply and demonstrate responsible computing principles to restore trust in technology.

Responsible Computing was founded by members IBM and Dell and is managed by the Object Management Group. Responsible Computing establishes a cohesive, interconnected framework across six critical domains providing every organization the ability to educate on their responsibilities, define goals, and measure their progress against these aspirations.

Our key principles provide a set of cross-cutting beliefs that underpin our values.

  • Sustainability:  Holistically contributing to the success of the UN SDGs and or ESG concerns
  • Inclusivity:  Trustworthy, inclusive, respectful and ethical at every step—with the team engaged and those impacted by the outcomes
  • Circularity:  Consider full lifecycle, modularity, reusability and circular economy in eliminating waste
  • Openness:  Being transparent and open to share, consume and learn from the wider community
  • Authenticity:  Being genuine and true to the values and principles to which you have been committed, be trusted, unbiased and collaborative
  • Accountability:  Becoming a role model, doing what is right, driving decisions with positive impact through measurable goal setting

Through these principles, our members are shaping ways to restore trust in IT by responsibly applying technology and sharing our experiences with others.
