Procurement at Origin
Delivering good energy requires a lot of work behind the scenes.
Our suppliers are our partners
They support our operations, like our generation assets, gas exploration and production assets, and LPG business. Our suppliers are critical to ensuring we deliver affordable and sustainable energy solutions to our customers.
At Origin, procurement is more than just the purchase of goods and services.
Procurement is an opportunity for us to have a positive impact across communities.
- We support regional suppliers across Australia, and in the communities we operate in
- We support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-owned businesses
- We support small-to-medium enterprises
We ensure that we procure responsibly, and from suppliers who share our values.

We procure responsibly
We partner with suppliers who share our values
We recognise that our purchasing decisions have far-reaching consequences for our communities and environment.
That’s why we’re committed to improving our supply chain’s social, ethical and environmental footprint.
We select suppliers who share this purpose to make a lasting, positive difference in our communities.
We are accountable in our payments to small business suppliers
Making on-time payments to our small business suppliers creates good energy for our community and economy.
We are also accountable for our on-time payments commitment through our bi-annual reporting to the Australian Government’s Payment Times Reporting Scheme.
We understand that in order to thrive, small businesses rely on prompt and on-time payment.
We recognise that our business has a responsibility to help combat modern slavery
Combating modern slavery is a key part of running a sustainable business. Our 2021 Modern Slavery Statement outlines our progress in identifying, assessing, prioritising and addressing modern slavery risks in our operations and supply chain. Taking these steps to combat modern slavery reflects our core value of caring about our impact.
