RIBA helps found International Ethics Standards coalition

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is a founding member of 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 comprises 48 member organisations with professionals working in a diverse range of countries including China, Brazil, Dubai, Russia and India.

Coalition partners, 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. 

RIBA President Stephen Hodder said: “The RIBA 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 the founding organisations at the United Nations (New York) in October 2014.  

It is hoped that the new International Ethics Standard will be ready in early 2016.
