Our key actions

Our actions are based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

SDG 8

DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH

Origo is a 100% French company which has two strong principles:

Do not resort to tax optimization abroad,

Transparency on its financial results.

Since its creation in 2014 and following 7 accounting years, Origo has paid more than three million euros in taxes and contributions to the State and various French communities.

Moreover, in order to be in line with its commitments, Origo has chosen a responsible bank to support it: Crédit Coopératif.

SDG 7

CLEAN AND AFORDABLE ENERGY

Our core business: facilitating, for large international groups, access to electricity from renewable sources.

Each year Origo contributes a little more to the consumption of renewable electricity, as evidenced by the number of green MWh sold per year from 2014 to 2021. In 2021, Origo supported its customers in 58 different countries.

SDG 13

Measures to combat climate change

“Origo tries to limit the greenhouse gas emissions linked to its activity: it consumes 100% renewable electricity and offsets residual emissions in order to obtain a neutral footprint.”

Ivan Debay

Since 2017, Origo has calculated its carbon footprint according to the GHG Protocol methodology (results available in our CSR report) and is carbon neutral. In 2021, Origo is supporting a voluntary carbon offset project for reforestation and biodiversity protection in Panama.

SDG 1

NO POVERTY

Beyond environmental protection, the project in Panama also funds a series of activities to promote employment and education for local communities.


Plantation of Jojoba, manufacture of handicrafts and soap made from jojoba oil, construction of a school and projects for access to drinking water create jobs and protect endemic fauna.
