Guidance Note 7
Members should be aware of the impact their professional duties have on the environment and take proactive measures to operate in a sustainable manner. In doing so members should consider the effects of their design and the impact of that design on the environment by considering the whole life cycle of the building through design, construction, use, re-use and demolition such that it reduces unnecessary consumption of resources and minimises waste.
Guidance Note 9
Members should be aware of and have a commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in the performance of their professional duties. In doing so, members will engender a positive and supportive culture, free of bullying, harassment, victimisation, and unlawful discrimination and where respect for all colleagues and clients is upheld.
The new Code of Conduct will also guide Members to examples of "best practice" available elsewhere in the Institution's website, such as the Institution’s Business Practice Notes.
Code of conduct
Members are, justifiably, held in high professional regard. Adherence to the values and principles, as defined by the Code of Conduct, sets members apart from those structural engineers who are not members of the Institution, providing an excellent endorsement of members’ ethical and professional conduct.
The new Code of Conduct will be published on 1 January 2022.
