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 Standard.
