Our key actions
Our actions follow the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH
Origo is a 100% French company with two strong principles:
- Not to 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.
CLEAN AND AFORDABLE ENERGY
Our core business: facilitating access to electricity from renewable sources to large international groups.
Every year Origo contributes a little more to the consumption of renewable electricity, as shown by the number of green MWh sold per year from 2014 to 2021. By 2021, Origo has supported customers in 58 different countries.
MEASURES TO COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE
“Origo tries to limit the greenhouse gas emissions related to its activity: it consumes 100% renewable electricity and offsets the residual emissions to achieve a neutral footprint.”
Since 2017, Origo calculates its carbon footprint according to the GHG Protocol methodology (check the results 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.
Beyond saving the environment, the project in Panama is also funding a range of activities that promote employment and education for local communities.
More than 150 jobs have been created since the project began. Educational materials are also provided to the communities.
