Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI)

Web       https://eiti.org

The global standard to promote the open and accountable management of oil, gas and mineral resources.

Guided by the belief that a country’s natural resources belong to its citizens, the EITI has established a global standard to promote the open and accountable management of oil, gas and mineral resources. The EITI Standard requires the disclosure of information along the extractive industry value chain from the point of extraction, to how revenues make their way through the government, and how they benefit the public. By doing so, the EITI seeks to strengthen public and corporate governance, promote understanding of natural resource management, and provide the data to inform reforms for greater transparency and accountability in the extractives sector. In each of the 53 implementing countries, the EITI is supported by a coalition of government, companies, and civil society.
