Orion’s Commitments to Environmental and Social Responsibility
Orion is dedicated to a sustainable future and treating its members and customers with dignity, all while ensuring fair and responsible practices.
Our forward-thinkers are devoted to innovation in LED lighting and energy reduction — not just for cost savings, but also a positive environmental impact.
Orion is a proud member of the U.S. Energy Star program, which promotes appliances, lights, and other items that offer efficient energy consumption. We also boast a large portfolio of DLC-listed products — meaning they’re remarkable for high performance and energy conservation, and are rebate eligible.

Practicing What We Preach is a Key Element of Our Business
Materials for our own facilities are sourced locally or regionally, reducing the need for global transportation. We even generate our own electricity from our onsite 50kW wind turbine, which is complemented by the solar panels on our facility rooftop.

WE PRODUCE MORE THAN 10% OF THE ENERGY WE USE
Our members, customers, partners, and everyone who lives on this planet — we owe it to them all to provide products, relationships, and environments that promote well-being.
A safe and respectful working atmosphere for our members is essential. We advocate for a healthy work-life balance and caring responses to crises — like the COVID-19 pandemic — making our members’ and customers’ safety our top priority.
Some Orion products, such as PureMotion™ UVC, promote public health and safety. These products sanitize indoor air for purer breathing, and we use them ourselves — championing safety for our members and customers alike.
Giving back is another priority for Orion, as we encourage our members to volunteer for worthy charitable causes and campaigns, such as United Way and aid to Ukraine.
