Responsible technology

Ensuring our tech is always for good, accountable, fair and open

Our aim

By 2030, we aim to become the world’s most trusted connector of people, devices and machines. That’s a big ambition, but as a leading tech and tech enabler business we know it’s not enough to just minimise harms.

From supercharging a digital talent movement to discovering digital innovations, we ensure new technology will transform our homes, our lives, and our society.​

We design and deliver tech to empower people and improve their lives​.


We’re accountable for our actions and take care to avoid and protect against tech misuse.


We work hard to ensure everyone is treated fairly and with respect.


We listen, collaborate and are transparent about our actions.
