Our Sustainability Mission

We all have a responsibility to protect our planet’s natural resources and prevent climate change. Origin Storage have already taken steps to help reduce our impact on the environment - switching to renewable-only energy suppliers and becoming ISO14001 certified in 2022. Now we are going even further in our environmental mission.

Committed to change

At Origin Storage, we are determined to reduce our impact on the environment in any way that we can. We have been a member of the UN Global Compact since 2019 and are committed to reaching Net Zero by 2030, reducing our carbon emissions by 45% and looking at ways of offsetting the rest.

Small changes can make a big difference

We believe that the slightest changes can have the greatest impact when it comes to climate change.

Origin have replaced all of our plastic packaging tape in favour of recyclable, self-adhesive paper tape and replaced our old packaging materials with recyclable air cushions and bubble wrap. This has dramatically reduced the amount of plastic going to landfill.

We have also changed our cardboard boxes from white to brown to remove the need for chlorine bleaching and further reduce our environmental impact.

One step at a time to reduce our carbon footprint

Investing in renewable forms of energy is incredibly important to Origin Storage, and we are currently exploring the use of solar energy and battery energy storage systems (BESS) at both of our sites in the United Kingdom.

We have also committed to replacing all company cars with electric and hybrid vehicles when current contracts expire.

Origin have also recently launched our new IT Asset Disposal (ITAD) Service, detailed below.

Secure ITAD Services

Origin Storage offers secure ITAD (IT Asset Disposal) Services, providing customers with a way to safely dispose of their redundant IT and electrical equipment (including but not limited to Servers, PCs, Laptops, Tablets and Desk Phones). Our warehouse is fully accredited to the international management standards ISO 9001 (Quality Management), ISO 14001 (Environment) and ISO 27001 (Information Security).

Asset tracking

Asset Tracking

Once your assets have arrived into our secure processing facility we will log all items, by serial number where possible, on to our tracking system. Any data bearing devices are segregated, logged and securely processed and certificates of data erasure or destruction will be made available.

Asset processing

Asset Processing

Once items are booked onto our system, they are processed to safely test/check and make-good any assets that still retain any market value. Our goal is to re-purpose as much as possible to increase product life-cycle and minimise waste.


Disposal & Remarketing

Once processed, assets are either ready to be remarketed and sold, where we can potentially provide a revenue-share, or if they are beyond repair they are stripped to raw materials whereby they are processed accordingly through our AATF facility, stringently regulated by the Environment Agency.

Secure Data Erasure

Origin’s Data Erasure solution offers customers 100% peace of mind when needing their corporate or personal Data 100% erased from their device. Origin uses the extremely powerful and multi-certified erasure platform from Blancco as its core.

This solution is Common Criteria (ISO 15408) and Asset Disposal & Information Security Alliance (ADISA) Certified ensuring your Data is in safe hands. Blancco holds approvals from multiple armed forces across Europe and meets various military guidelines.

On-site Shredding

We destroy your hard drives on your premises to ensure there is no risk of the drives leaving your building before it has been destroyed in compliance with Government and Military guidelines.

The shredders are wheeled directly into your data centre, and shred your entire hard drive into small pieces using industrial grade destruction equipment. The hard drive shredding process completely destroys the drive platters, mechanisms, and the electronic components rendering the data unrecoverable.

Our Security Cleared shredding team will record all serial numbers and provide you with a full certificate of destruction once the shredding is complete before leaving site.

Secure Transportation

Origin Storage use a fleet of unmarked vans, that are GPS tracked. Collection staff are Security Cleared, to ensure we can work under the strictest of legislation & guidelines.

Once the team has been signed-in on-site we work closely with the client to check and record every asset by serial number. When we have cross-checked our list with that of the client, we can seal the shipment ready for transportation to our secure processing plant.
