Are these Data Ethics standards?
What does signing up to support these mean?
Real Estate hasn't always been good at getting on the front foot with big challenges that have emerged, we are trying to change that when it comes to data ethics.
Do you vet the companies that sign up to support?
No. Signing up to support the principles is simply a public declaration. It is open to all companies and organisations and the requirement to sign up a is nothing more than wanting to make a public declaration that data ethics are important and that the principles will be built into day to day thinking.
Do members of the Industry bodies that support the RED Foundation have to work towards these?
No. The organisations that support the Real Estate Data Foundation recognise that the role of data is important and in some situations there are benefits from having a cross sector space to address challenges that do, or will exist.
What happens if I don't follow these principles?
The RED Foundation does not specify how the principles should be worked towards or adopted, nor do we carry out any checks on companies that they do / will build them into their thinking and there is no penalty if they do not.
Why have you joined the IESC (International Ethics Standards Coalition)
We are specifically interested in Data Ethics, but we see this as really the application of more general ethical behaviour to data.
If I sign up to the data ethical principles, does that mean I have all areas of data ethics covered?
No, absolutely not.
Where can I find out more?
You can find more resources in the RED Foundation resource library.
How do we show that we are supporting the data ethical principles?
You are welcome to share this with whoever you want to and a 'badge' for companies to use will be created in the coming weeks.
