Environmentally friendly information technology solutions
The goal of the Policy is to reduce negative impact of our operations on society. Information technology will undoubtedly play a major role in solving environmental problems and reducing the negative climate impact on society. Innovation and the impact of digital solutions and artificial intelligence are very important factors in this respect.
As Origo is listed on the Iceland Stock Exchange (NASDAQ OMX), the Policy is essentially based on the Nasdaq ESG criteria of February 2020. Origo's Sustainability Policy is threefold, covering the factors used by Nasdaq's guidelines for measuring and disseminating environmental issues, social factors and corporate governance. The Policy goals take into account the current position of the Group. The Policy is also based on the United Nations' Global Goals and the government's action plan on climate change. The Global Goals are founded on three pillars of sustainable development; economic, social and environmental. Origo has chosen to support four of them specifically; Global Goal 5, gender equality; Global Goal 9, industry, innovation and infrastructure; Global Goal 12, responsible consumption and production; and Global Goal 13, climate action.
