The EITI standard requires that all the important cash flows of a country’s extractive sector are considered. During various meetings, the MSG discussed which sectors of the natural resources extraction industry should be included in the first D-EITI report. The following individual sectors were addressed:

  • Braunkohle
  • Erdöl und Erdgas
  • Kali und Salze
  • Steine und Erden

The mining of hard coal in Germany will be phased out at the end of 2018, so this sector is not considered in the framework of the payment reconciliation (see the general remarks on the mining of hard coal in Germany and on subsidies and tax aids or the hard coal sector).
