Opening Extractives

Opening Extractives is a cross-sector partnership between the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) and Open Ownership (OO), supported by the BHP Foundation. The five-year, USD 7 million programme aims to end the use of anonymous companies linked to corruption and mismanagement in the extractive sector.

The programme supports several countries in increasing the availability of information about the beneficial owners of companies involved in the extractive sector. It takes a multi-stakeholder approach, bringing together governments, companies, civil society and other stakeholders to drive forward the necessary legal and technical reforms.

The programme's three objectives are:

  • Implementing beneficial ownership transparency effectively
  • Driving progress towards beneficial ownership transparency internationally
  • Using beneficial ownership data to realise its impact
