The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative

Launching Opening Extractives: A global programme to end the use of anonymous companies

The EITI and Open Ownership are partnering to deliver a new and ambitious global programme, which aims to end the use of anonymous companies linked to corruption and mismanagement in the extractive sector. The programme is supported by the BHP Foundation, its anchor funder.

Publish | Use | Inform

Contract transparency is an integral part of open and accountable extractive sector management. It is increasingly becoming a global norm, and all EITI implementing countries are required to publish oil, gas and mining contracts granted and amended from 1 January 2021.  

Share your journey towards #opendeals2021 as transparency takes another step forward.

Our purpose

We believe that a country’s natural resources belong to its citizens.

Our mission is to promote understanding of natural resource management, strengthen public and corporate governance and provide the data to inform greater transparency and accountability in the extractives sector.

By becoming a member of the EITI, countries commit to disclose information along the extractive industry value chain – from how extraction rights are awarded, to how revenues make their way through the government and how they benefit the public. Through participation in the EITI, 55 countries have agreed to a common set of rules governing what has to be disclosed and when – the EITI Standard.

In each country that has joined the EITI, a multi-stakeholder group, composed of government, companies and civil society supports implementation of the EITI Standard.
