In line with the SAPOA Code of Ethics and Conduct, SAPOA makes reference to a billboard along Main Road in Bryanston, Johannesburg (image attached). The billboard, from ‘the concerned property industry’, has the words “The poor people of South Africa matter more than you Mr President”. SAPOA is not aware who erected the billboard in question, and whilst its membership owns and controls approximately 90% of commercial property in South Africa, SAPOA would like to disassociate itself with its contents.
SAPOA members and their employee representatives are committed to promoting the highest level of professionalism, integrity, and ability available in the commercial property industry in all its forms. This Code of Ethics and Conduct is designed to foster trust and mutual respect amongst those working in the industry as well as the public at large.
