On 13 October, several civil-society organisations submitted a letter (linked below) to the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) Board calling on global reporting standards for extractive industries to include transparency from fossil fuel companies about the future viability of their oil, coal and gas projects in a warming world. This is to address climate change as part of the EITI.

The letter is attached below. Jonas Moberg, Head of the Secretariat, published the following response: The EITI and Climate Risk (PDF attached below).
