Member Code of Conduct

The Clean Energy Council Member Code of Conduct provides an ethical framework for the conduct of members’ businesses and other activities.

The Code of Conduct defines how Clean Energy Council members are to relate to industry, government, employees, suppliers, consumers and the community. The Clean Energy Council requires that members operate in a professional manner, and with the highest level of commercial integrity.

In practice

This Code of Conduct provides a common behavioural framework for all Clean Energy Council members. Together with our purpose and strategic goals, it is a key part of the Clean Energy Council culture.

The Code of Conduct is not intended to be all-encompassing. There are areas in which the Clean Energy Council expects members to develop detailed policies in accordance with their local requirements. The Code of Conduct provides a set of guiding principles to incorporate with whatever additional local policies are required in businesses.
