Key Performance Indicators

In 2015 we developed and implemented key performance indicators (KPIs) in each of our sustainability focus areas.

The tick outlines if a target has been achieved, whereas a cross indicates that this target has not been achieved. These targets have been devised internally by URENCO.

* ‘Specific‘ refers to a calculation which is normalised for year on year comparisons based on kgSW/a (production capacity).


(9) Transported, imported, exported, or treated waste deemed hazardous under the terms of the Basel Convention Annex I, II, III and VIII.

(10) Increase due to the TMF project transitioning to internal works, which has increased the amount of aerosols, paints and oils which are considered hazardous.

(11) URENCO’s KPI definition for recycled waste includes composted, recycled and reused waste. There has been a decrease in 2015 due to some reused waste being reclassified as recovered, whereby the waste was re-utilised to serve a different purpose at our TMF. However, if we take account of the recovered waste in the overall figure we have increased recycling by 5%. For the data tables please see page 60.
