Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct

Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct

EIANZ members agree to abide by the Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct in their professional practice.

Compliance with the code is central to sound environmental practice and credibility of the profession.

The Code commits environmental practitioners to:

  • Promote environmental principles
  • Demonstrate integrity
  • Represent and promote the profession
  • Practice competently.

On Wednesday 26 May 2021, the EIANZ held a Special General Meeting to consider a resolution to amend the Institute’s Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct (Code) to recognise Indigenous knowledge, values and rights. The EIANZ Board is delighted to announce that during the meeting, members voted to implement this change that will come into effect on 1 December 2021.

The EIANZ is now working on next steps to build the capacity of members and certified practitioners to work within the Code. We will keep you informed on progress as we move towards this important change.
