UK EITI Multi-Stakeholder Group
At present, Extractive Industries Civil Society (EICS) provides 2 full and 2 alternate members to the UK EITI Multistakeholder Group (Publish What You Pay provides the same number).
The present activity of the group is aimed at achieving full membership of the EITI for the UK by next year (2017). To this end, the group’s first report will be published in early April.
The UK government, along with the US government, is leading the way for developed economies – many are now following on – in joining the EITI. This complements the UK government’s wider efforts to place transparency and anti-corruption at the centre of the international agenda.
Companies, which make up the third ‘constituency’ of the tripartite initiative, are thoroughly committed to best practice in the reporting of payments to government.
