Origin PRICING Guidelines
The Origin Data Hub supports manufacturer sales processes while generating valuable industry analytics and trends. Optional subscriptions to premium features, analytics packages, enhanced data sharing are paid-for Origin products. Subscriptions are tailored for Manufacturers, Reporting Bodies and 3rd Party software applications.
To encourage maximum industry participation and help grow the visibility of and accessibility to materials and products with sustainability documentation, Origin is freely accessible to browse and view all published materials and certifications.
Facts for FREE.
Publishing and viewing materials is free to remove bias and to encourage maximum industry participation.
No “Pay to Play” on Origin.
We believe in protecting the quality and integrity of material and certification data on Origin. Manufacturers cannot pay to increase the search ranking of their materials. Origin's search algorithms prioritize information completeness - material visibility increases as disclosure does.
