PWYP Norway can reveal that ten of the world’s most powerful oil, gas and mining companies own 6,038 subsidiaries and over a third of them are based in secrecy jurisdictions. The three Norwegian companies mapped own 55 subsidiaries, 20% of which are based in secrecy jurisdictions. On these pages you will find more information about this project, the detrimental effects of secrecy jurisdictions and how these can be tackled. The database is publicly available and can be explored here.
