Ethical Standards of the United Nations Secretary General,WLCU officers and members needs to learn from these standards

Ethical Standards

“I will seek to set the highest ethical standard. The good name of the United Nations is one of its most valuable assets – but also one of its most vulnerable. The Charter calls on staff to uphold the highest levels of efficiency, competence and integrity, and I will seek to ensure to build a solid reputation for living up to that standard.”

Address to the General Assembly on taking the oath of office (14 Dec. 2006)

“We must hold all UN employees to the highest standards of integrity and ethical behaviour.  On this, I have sought to set an early example, by submitting financial disclosure statement to the UN Ethics Office, for standard external review by Pricewaterhouse Coopers…  But all the financial disclosures in the world will mean very little if we do not bolster our ethical standards – and our implementation of them – both at Headquarters and in the field.”
