SUPPORTING GOOD TAX GOVERNANCE, ACCOUNTABILITY, AND TRANSPARENCY
In December 2013, the Fleurette Group became a Supporting Member of the EITI (Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative). The EITI is a global coalition of governments, companies and civil society co-operating to improve transparency over the revenues from natural resources. The EITI maintains the EITI Standard which ensures full disclosure of taxes and other payments made by oil, gas and mining companies to governments. These payments are disclosed in an annual EITI Report.
Since becoming an EITI supporter, Fleurette is pleased to see that the DRC is once again recognized as a full member of the EITI. As an “EITI Supporting Company” operating in a country implementing the EITI, the Fleurette Group is required to disclose how much it pays to the government in tax.
The Fleurette Group believes in the principles that promote good tax governance, accountability, and transparency, and we are committed to delivering on these principles inside our business.
We fully support EITI and promote the values that characterize it: responsible stewardship of natural resources; transparency on money transfers between businesses and host nations and a commitment to accountability.
