In carrying out our activities, it is important that we maintain independent and objective relationships with individual parties in the field. Personal interests are avoided, and if personal interests are involved, these are kept strictly separate from any business interests. All conflicts of interest or the appearance thereof are avoided. Indonesian Waste Platform is honest and transparent in this regard and can therefore always explain why specific decisions have been made.

Indonesian Waste Platform is a reliable partner, meaning that team members live up to expectations. We do not make commitments that we may not be able to or are not able to keep, and we do not set unrealistic expectations in our communication. We fulfil our agreements. Rules, standards for things such as quality, and norms, social and otherwise, are adhered to, both in letter and spirit. Indonesian Waste Platform and its team members are held accountable for this and take responsibility accordingly;

Decisions are made carefully, with thorough consideration of the various interests involved. Public funds and other resources are used in a targeted and cost-effective manner. Team members also use office and ICT facilities provided by Indonesian Waste Platform in a responsible and professional manner. This applies particularly to internet use and email. Personal and other data are handled confidential.
