Why are Benefitial Ownership and Financial Disclousures important to fight corruption?

Beneficial Owners (BO): These are natural persons who ultimately benefit from the income and assets of a company or who own or control said company.

Financial Disclosure (FD): Refers to a system in which public officials are required to periodically declare, through affidavits, information about their assets, income, business activities, interests, etc.

Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs): These are people who carry out or have carried out important public functions (for example, presidents, ministers, legislators, judges, etc.) and, in this sense, are considered to run an increased risk of engaging in corrupt activities, money laundering, and other actions that hinder transparency and accountability.

EITI is the global standard to promote the open and accountable management of oil, gas and mineral resources. Guided by the belief that a country’s natural resources belong to its citizens, the EITI has established a global standard to promote the open and accountable management of oil, gas and mineral resources. The EITI Standard requires the disclosure of information along the extractive industry value chain from the point of extraction, to how revenues make their way through the government, and how they benefit the public, in order to strengthen public and corporate governance.
