Corporate Digital Responsibility (CDR) is the organisational policy of assuming responsibility in the age of digital transformation. It is a decisive factor in shaping the process of digitalisation for the common good and ensuring it serves the best interests of citizens.
Taking on responsibility
The CDR Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection promotes corporate responsibility in the digital transformation. The initiative was launched together with companies in 2018. Its aim is to ensure that digital responsibility becomes a normal part of day-to-day business for all companies.
The CDR Code
The dynamic development of technology requires voluntary compliance by companies beyond regulation. The CDR Code contains guiding principles and objectives that the members of the CDR Initiative have committed to. With annual reports on measures to achieve these objectives, the members make their commitment tangible.
Questions around CDR permeate all areas of life and the economy. The Initiative sets itself the aim of providing ideas and encouraging others to follow in its example.
