Equitable Origin

Equitable Origin is the first stakeholder-based, comprehensive social and environmental certification system for oil and gas exploration and production. It aims to bring transparency and accountability to oil and gas operations, at the site level, ensuring that producers are operating with the highest social and environmental standards.

Equitable Origin’s aim is to create a new norm for oil and gas production through an independent certification system and ecolabel program that rewards responsible practices relating to social, environmental and safety performance.

The organisation’s EO100™ Standard focuses on six principles: corporate governance, accountability and ethics; human rights, social impact & community development; fair labour and working conditions; indigenous people's rights; climate change, biodiversity & environment; and project life cycle management.

Equitable Origin is in compliance with:
