All major international financial institutions (IFI) support the EITI.
Supporting governments have promoted extractive industry transparency across the world.
Over 90 major companies involved in oil, gas, mining, and commodity trading, and institutional investors with total assets under management of more than USD 19 trillion support the EITI at the international level.
The participation of civil society is key to ensure that the transparency created by the EITI leads to better informed debate and greater accountability. Citizens working actively together to make use of the information generated by the EITI is critical to establishing links with wider reforms in the governance of the extractive sector.
EITI capacity building activities make use of the extensive knowledge and experience of implementing country representatives by encouraging peer learning and exchanges.
The Secretariat is funded by supporting governments and companies.
