AFG Code of Conduct
The Australian Forest Growers’ (AFG) Code of Conduct
is the foundation upon which our membership standards are built and applies to all membership categories. All members of AFG are required to adhere to, and promote this code, to uphold the integrity and reputation of private forest growers and to safeguard the public interest in matters of safety and health and otherwise.
AFG’s Code of Conduct is composed of 6 key standards. These standards also apply when members are conducting activities overseas. The standards are supported by explanatory statements. These statements elaborate the nature and application of the principles but do not cover all issues associated with each principle; rather, they provide guidance for members of AFG in applying ethical principles in the conduct of their forest management practices. The sections also set out some behaviours and questions you could ask yourself when considering if your conduct meets professional standards.
Members of AFG shall:
1. Act with Integrity
2. Always provide a high standard of service
3. Treat others with respect
4. Take responsibility
5. Act in a way that promotes trust in the profession
6. Have regard for sustainability throughout their work
