Sammanfattning:  Digitalisation developing rapidly in agriculture and the image of a digitalised agriculture often describes an idealized future. Digitalisation should be used to achieve sustainability in agriculture. Few studies have an in-depth analysis that considers all three dimensions of sustainability in the context of digitalisation. The aim of the study is thus to increase understanding of how digitalisation contributes to sustainability in agriculture. The study is based on a qualitative method, where the results are collected from five interviews at two large agricultural companies and one national association. The data collected was analyzed using a six-step thematic analysis inspired by the Braun and Clark (2014) model. The results show that digital tools contribute to increased production, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, gender equality, increased personal security, biodiversity conservation and profitability. Digital tools are used to measure, improve resource use, share and analyse data and support decision-making. A decision-makers should know that investments in order for contribute to one of the sustainability dimensions, they interact with, or counteracts to other sustainability dimensions. Expertise in sustainability and acceptance of digital tools are important for a digital tool to contribute to sustainability. A decision-maker should focus on more aspects when introducing digital tools than the way the tool performs one or more processes.
