IoD Code of Conduct Public consultation

Learn more about the IoD's newly commissioned Code of Conduct for Directors and share your views.

On 6 June 2024 the IoD published a consultation document on a Code of Conduct for Directors. Produced by a commission chaired by Lord McNicol of West Kilbride and supported by BDO, it aims to provide a behavioural framework for directors to help build trust in UK business.

An opportunity for Wales members to respond to the consultation.

The Code represents a voluntary commitment and is not intended to hold back directors or create a new burden of compliance. The six key 'Principles of Director Conduct' are:

  • Leading by Example – demonstrating exemplary standards of behaviour in personal conduct and decision-making.
  • Integrity – acting with honesty, adhering to strong ethical values, and doing the right thing.
  • Transparency – communicating, acting and making decisions openly, honestly and clearly.
  • Accountability – taking personal responsibility for actions and their consequences.
  • Fairness – treating people equitably, without discrimination or bias.
  • Responsible Business – integrating ethical and sustainable practices into business decisions, taking into account societal and environmental impacts.
