Origin Enterprises : 2021 Sustainability Report

10/22/2021 | 02:04am EST


CEO Message

Our vision is to be the trusted partner of choice across our value chain. We will achieve shared economic, social and environmental ambitions by working collaboratively with farmers, growers, landscapers, amenity professionals, NGOs and other industry partners.

As we publish our inaugural Sustainability Report, the role of agriculture and food production in our society and its associated impact on the environment is in sharp focus.

Across the globe, extreme weather events, the COVID-19 pandemic and disrupted supply chains have highlighted the essential role of global agriculture, food production and land restoration. The need for collective action to achieve a net-zero emissions economy, which will protect the health of our people and our environment for future generations, has never been clearer.

Nurturing Growth

In pursuit of the Origin purpose of shaping a sustainable future through agronomy, we

have adopted a long-term sustainability strategy to 2030 - Nurturing Growth.

Nurturing Growth recognises the deep interdependence between environmental and social issues and sets out a framework to make us and our supply chain more sustainable and equitable.

Nurturing our Society

Our number one priority is the health of our people, trading partners, customers and the communities where we operate. We are committed to building on our co-operative heritage, by continuing to foster a culture of respect and trust with our stakeholders.

Nurturing our people and their talent is core to this approach. In 2020 we deepened our commitment to wellbeing and to fostering a culture where all colleagues feel safe, valued and fully engaged in our sustainability journey. To support our ambitions, we continue to measure the level of employee engagement and for 2021 we achieved a sustainable engagement score of 88%, despite a challenging operating environment due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Building on over 125 years of trusted partnerships, Origin is committed to playing a progressive role in protecting the planet and nurturing our society, through a collaborative and science-based approach to responsible business."

Our Commitment

Nurturing our Environment

At Origin we are making steady progress in reducing the environmental impacts of our operations and are committed to adopting a formal Environmental Management System approach as part of our 2030 strategy.

As we strive to mitigate the impact of climate change and feed a growing global population, Origin is committed to playing a leading role in developing innovative solutions which will help shape a future that optimises resource efficiency, enhances sustainable food production systems and safeguards our environment. We do this by leveraging the knowledge base of our agronomy and product development teams to share our expert insights and drive in-field adoption of science‑led solutions in both the world of agriculture and amenity sports turf.

The addition of Green-tech to our Group extends these solutions to urban green spaces, landscaping and forestry.

For over a century, Origin has delivered integrated management programmes to support growers through improved farm practice and product innovation, and more recently, by applying digital solutions to improve social and environmental impacts.


Climate-responsive and sustainable agriculture takes into account the entire food value chain - posing a challenge for all partners across the sector. Securing global food supplies for the future requires a rethink of current agricultural practices, in particular the development of more sustainable solutions alongside ecologically‑based practices to address climate change, soil degradation and biodiversity loss. Origin will continue

to participate in industry research as a partner in innovation projects. Through this partnership approach we seek to identify new solutions, new crop varieties and new techniques to help growers optimise their crop production in a sustainable manner.

A Phased Approach

As we embed sustainability and target‑setting across our Group operations, we are adopting a measured, phased approach - with an initial focus on establishing our emissions baseline and setting target reductions in line with accepted scientific evidence.

Our commitment to reducing our own environmental footprint and enhancing our sustainability credentials is an absolute. In 2020, we became a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact and are committed to making its core principles an integral part of our strategy, culture and day-to-day operations. For Origin, the future is about nurturing growth and delivering sustainable value for all.
