Orian 'Goin' Green' for 30th

In a renewed effort to become more environmentally friendly, the company is taking several new steps toward sustainability related to various aspects of its business.

"We are planning a year-long celebration," said Wim De Pape, coo. "And in conjunction with our anniversary, Orian is also announcing the launch of our company-wide Goin' Green campaign. It will offer every employee the opportunity to do their part for the environment."
