Industry associations can be an effective way to reach and advocate for a common industry view on key policy matters. 

Origin uses its memberships of industry associations to understand the views of other industry participants and present and advocate its views on relevant policy.

It is Origin’s policy to be a member of an industry association only where that association:

  1. gives Origin access to industry insights, expertise or information that may improve technical or operational performance; or
  2. provides Origin with insight or access into new markets; or
  3. enhances Origin’s ability to advocate for sound and/or commercially beneficial policy outcomes.

We acknowledge that not all members of an industry association share the same view on certain matters, and when this occurs, Origin seeks to influence other members to form an aligned industry view, including in relation to climate change.

Origin will continue to engage with key stakeholders in relation to membership of industry associations. Memberships are reviewed annually taking into account policy alignment and the cost and benefits of membership. Our 2021 review is available below.
