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 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.
