EO developed a voluntary independent certification process whereby production sites are certified in internationally-recognized standards related to: corporate governance, accountability and ethics; human rights, social impact, and community development; fair labor and working conditions; indigenous peoples’ rights; and climate change, biodiversity and the environment. 

The Standards were developed through a multi-stakeholder process which included oil and gas companies and service providers, governments, indigenous communities, academics and environmental and social non-governmental organizations.  Equitable Origin is currently active throughout North and South America. 

From the Equitable Origin website: “Equitable Origin maintains a diverse and growing roster of Qualified Implementation Consultants (QICs) who have been vetted and trained in the application of all aspects of the EO100™ Standard. In addition to training in the content and application of the Standard, QICs possess experience and expertise in numerous areas relevant to energy development and its social and environmental impacts. QICs are consulting firms and individuals who share an interest in EO’s mission and a network of contact in the energy industry.”
