Supporters

The EITI is a multi-stakeholder coalition of governments, companies, investors, civil society organisations, and partner organisations. A multi-stakeholder group oversees the EITI process in implementing countries and internationally through the EITI Board.

Financial contributions of supporters

Companies, implementing countries and some supporting countries support the EITI financially: 

  • To be considered a supporting company, a company has to make a minimum contribution.  The oil and gas sub-constituency is required to contribute USD 20,000, USD 40,000 and USD 60,000 depending on market capitalisation, and the recommendation for the mining companies is the same. Mining companies are recommended to make the same contributions as the oil and gas companies and must contribute at least USD 15,000.  All companies are encouraged to make greater contributions. This was decided at the EITI Board meeting in October 2016 following the recommendation of the Finance Committee.
     
  • Implementing countries fund their processes in-country. Following a decision by the  EITI Board meeting in October 2016 it was agreed that they are also required to make a financial contribution of USD 10,000 to the International Management of the EITI to help cover some of the support that they get from the international body. 
     
  • Supporting countries contribute finacially, technically and politically. For a list of financial contributions in 2016, please see here.
