New Zealand launches Code of Ethics for Wind Industry

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The New Zealand wind industry has launched a Code of Ethics to ensure that wind farms are responsibly developed and ethically sound, according to the Australian Wind Energy Association. The New Zealand Wind Energy Association (NZWEA) adopted a set of rules in 1997, which place an undertaking on all of their members to ensure that they do not engage in any discreditable activities. However, it was not clear what actually constituted “discreditable conduct” or what should be done if it is believed that such conduct has taken place. The Code of Ethics addresses these ambiguities and places binding requirements on all members of the Association. If any person has any concerns regarding the conduct of any member of the NZWEA then they are invited to seek redress through the Code of Ethics.
