Disclosure

Provision of information as required under law or in good faith, regarding activities of a private individual, public official, company or organisation. Information can include a political candidate’s assets, a company’s financial reports, an NGO’s donors or a whistleblower’s accusations.

Why it matters

The full details of companies’ fields of operations should be published as well as their profit and loss accounts, with transfers made to governments and local communities reported on a country-by-country basis.
