Equitable Origin is a non-profit, multi-stakeholder organization incorporated in the United States
with operations throughout North America, South America and Europe. Equitable Origin partners
with business, government and communities to support transparent, sustainable and equitable
energy development that benefits all stakeholders.
Equitable Origin was founded over a decade ago with a vision to leverage market-based
mechanisms to recognize and reward responsible energy producers and to empower energy
purchasers and users to positively influence upstream impacts. Equitable Origin aims to address
the need for certified-responsible development of the energy on which we all rely. The EO System
helps to incentivize and promote best practices and better performance within the industry.
EO developed the world’s first multi-stakeholder standard and certification system for the energy
sector: the EO100TM Standard for Responsible Energy Development.
