What Statoil reported and what Statoil should have reported

Summary

  • Statoil reported on the minimum transparency requirement, called country-by-country reporting, on a half page in its sustainability report for 2014.
  • PWYP Norway shows that Statoil could have easily reported on
 a meaningful transparency requirement, called an extended country-by-country reporting, on that half page.
  • When companies can show their country-by-country presence on a half page, why will politicians not demand it from them?
