Climate Ambassadors Code of Conduct

This code of conduct applies to all Climate Ambassadors.

This code of conduct applies to all activities occurring in a public environment, whether in person, via email, video conferencing or on social media.

Climate Ambassadors must:

  • Act with integrity, respect, and in a fair and ethical manner
  • As part of their public engagements, commit to acting in a manner that is respectful of other people's views
  • In the delivery of their chosen initiatives, Climate Ambassadors must strive to be consistent with the stated objective of the Climate Change Declaration of March 2019 to reach Net Zero by 2030
  • Climate Ambassadors must not knowingly participate or assist in any unlawful action
  • Climate Ambassadors must not engage in any conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, or deceit or commit any act that reflects adversely on their reputation, integrity, or competence.
  • Climate Ambassadors must not engage in any conduct that compromises the reputation and integrity of the Council
  • Climate Ambassadors will be mindful of the health and wellbeing of those they engage with in the conduct of their activities, in particular vulnerable adults and young people
  • Climate Ambassadors must make reasonable efforts to ensure that messaging is accurate, up-to-date and complete
  • Climate Ambassadors must not knowingly make any misrepresentations in respect of climate change-related analyses, recommendations, actions, or other activities
  • As much as possible, Climate Ambassadors will contribute with concrete, science-based, trustworthy actions with clear and, ideally, measurable outcomes to show impact
  • Climate Ambassadors will commit to sharing relevant information on their actions, methodologies and results with other Climate Ambassadors and with the public. This will help participants and others to track progress, make improvements, learn from or join each other's initiatives, and understand the overall impact of the actions taken
  • Discussions and actions will be adapted to local contexts and target groups. The closer to people's day-to-day reality, the better
  • Climate Ambassadors will ensure they have sought appropriate permissions for public and private engagement, seeking support from the Council where appropriate

We reserve the right to require you to step down from this role in the event of a breach of this Code of Conduct.
