Open Ownership (OO) works with governments, companies and civil society to create effective beneficial ownership disclosure regimes. The Open Ownership Principles set the gold standard for effective beneficial ownership disclosure. The OO Principles are intended to support governments implementing beneficial ownership reforms and guide international institutions, civil society and private sector actors in understanding and advocating for effective reforms.
Open Ownership (OO) has been working with the EITI since 2017 to deliver beneficial ownership transparency reforms and has participated in EITI hosted conferences, workshops and board meetings. In 2021, OO and the EITI launched the joint Opening Extractives programme that will engage 8-10 countries in implementing beneficial ownership reforms and will enable the use of data to improve natural resource governance.
