The United Nations-formed International Ethics Standards (IES) Coalition is a group of nonprofits from around the world that are developing and implementing global standards of ethics for the land, property, construction, infrastructure, and related professions—of which all of the appraisal disciplines are, of course, an essential part.
In an interview with the International Institute of Business Valuers, Tony Grant, deputy chair of the IES Coalition, talked about the importance of ethics education for the global business valuation community. He says there is a “substantial body of evidence to suggest that transparency and ethical conduct are becoming increasingly important for business everywhere. Responsibility to the wider community is regarded as not only a matter of integrity, but a key to long-term commercial success. It is clear, therefore, that ethics education is vital for the future of the valuation profession both in courses for initial qualification and on a continuing basis throughout one’s professional career.”
