The expert group was directed by the UNECE’s Committee on Sustainable Energy to prepare a U.N. framework classification for fossil energy and mineral resources in order to facilitate the availability of relevant and reliable information on energy and mineral resources. In the session on financial reporting, Kathryn discussed recent SEC and EU transparency rules that will require resource extraction issuers to disclose payments to governments in connection with the commercial development of natural resources.
