Through the Impartiality Policy, we aim to ensure impartiality, transparency and independence in all of our activities. This is central to safeguarding the integrity of NEPCon’s decision-making so that stakeholders can have confidence in the integrity of our activities.
The purpose of this policy is to describe how NEPCon ensures independence, impartiality and transparency in all its activities.
NEPCon strives to avoid situations where a risk of impartiality arises, or a potential conflict of interest could exist, or be seen to exist. A conflict of interest occurs when an individual or organisation has multiple interests, one of which could possibly corrupt the motivation for an act in another.
NEPCon’s structure and policies have been designed to avoid any potential or actual conflict of interest, at both individual and institutional levels.
This policy was approved by Peter Feilberg, NEPCon Executive Director on 21 December 2016.
