3. Ms. Karin Barthelmes-Wehr, Chair of the International Ethics Standards Coalition, Germany

Topic: The International Ethics Standards Coalition (IES)---Creating a universal set of ethics principles for real estate and related professions

The aim of the global International Ethics Standards Coalition of real estate and related professional organizations is to assert the role of ethics in real estate to meet the needs of today’s global market. The global Coalition published the International Ethics Standards in 2015. It consists of high level principles which are being implemented by Coalition organisations providing greater consistency to users of professional services.
Why are ethical standards important in the real estate industry? Property and the built environment plays a huge role in our working and non-working lives as well as being a major contributor to local, regional and national and global economies. Therefore, professionals have a duty to uphold the highest standards throughout the world. As the property profession changes and becomes increasingly international, so must our approach to developing and reinforcing professional ethics. IES was being developed in response to mounting evidence which suggests businesses which adopt strong ethical practices receive greater levels of trust from customers, employees and other stakeholder groups. For these reasons it is essential that ethics guides the behaviour of property professionals, builds trust and improves the reputation of the global profession
What are the successful cases of organisations that have implemented IES since its launch? What are the benefits – especially to the countries along the belt and road route? How can associations who don’t have an ethics code adopt IES? Are participating organizations that have existing codes of conduct are expected to give them up in favour of IES or should they review theirs in order to align with IES? These and other questions will be covered by Karin Barthelmes-Wehr in her speech about the International Ethics Standards Coalition.
Karin Barthelmes-Wehr is Chair of the International Ethics Standards Coalition which was initiated by the United Nations in 2014. Today, the association consists of more than 130 real estate organisations from all over the world.
Karin is also Managing Director of the renowned Institute of Corporate Governance in the German Real Estate Industry (ICG) and is, amongst different other honorary appointments, member of the Advisory Committee of the Real Estate Department of the Hildesheim/Holzminden College in her home country.
She holds a Masters degree from the University of Munster (Germany) and has spent all her professional career in the real estate industry. Before joining ICG, she worked in real estate conference management for EUROFORUM and search for Heidrick & Struggles.
