Summary Scientists for Global Responsibility promotes ethical science, design and technology, based on the principles of openness, accountability, peace, social justice, and environmental sustainability. It is an independent UK-based membership organisation of hundreds of natural scientists, social scientists, engineers, IT professionals and architects, supported by hundreds more outside of these professions. SGR carries out research, education, and advocacy work centred around the military, environmental and political aspects of science, design and technology and provides a support network for ethically-concerned professionals in these fields. SGR is affiliated to the International Network of Engineers and Scientists for Global Responsibility (INES). Scientists for Global Responsibility (SGR) is a UK-based organisation which was formed in 1992 from the merger of Scientists Against Nuclear Arms (SANA), Electronics and Computing for Peace (ECP) and Psychologists for Peace (PfP). In 2005, Architects and Engineers for Social Responsibility (AESR) joined the SGR family. AESR had been formed in 1991 by a merger of Architects for Peace (AfP) and Engineers for Social Responsibility (ESR), the latter having been created when Engineers for Nuclear Disarmament decided to widen its remit.
