This set of values is the source of the Orion Group SA’s mission and drives its vision for the African continent.
Our mission : To meet the continent’s energy needs while minimizing our environmental footprint
Even as a new Africa emerges, which is developing along the lines of advanced countries, its energy requirements are continually soaring. Orion Group SA, a leading Central African company, aims to play an active role in African social and economic development by boosting access to energy for all.
Aware of the need to preserve the environment and minimize our impact on climate change, Orion Group SA undertakes to work responsibly and sustainably with Orion Green in carbon emissions trading, by capitalizing on the Congo Basin and a goal of holding some 10 million hectares of forest as their contribution to cutting carbon emissions.
