NZIBS joins the International Ethics Standards Coalition

NZIBS has joined a new international coalition that will develop the first set of globally-recognised ethics standards for real-estate and related professional organisations.

The International Ethics Standards (IES) Coalition currently consists over 100 member organisations with professionals working in a diverse range of countries around the globe.

Coalition Members, many of which already have their own codes of conduct focusing on qualities like trustworthiness, integrity and respect, will work together to align ethics principles through a new international standard.

NZIBS has its own robust standards and codes and is committed to working with our fellow global professionals to develop a common ethics standard. “I strongly believe establishing this important standard across the entire supply chain will enhance transparency, consistency and trust in the services being offered by professionals in the global and interconnected marketplace.”

The IES Coalition was first proposed during a meeting of a number of founding organisations at the United Nations (New York) in October 2014.

The final International Ethics Standards was published in early December 2016.
