Urenco has evolved its strategy for social investment, with a clear focus on multi-year partnerships with charitable organisations and enhanced alignment of our internship, educational and other social programmes with our wider sustainability priorities.
Our Board has approved an increase to the social investment budget and a programme has been developed as a significant element of our refreshed sustainability strategy, which will be communicated in our forthcoming Sustainability Report.
A Social Investment Committee has now been formed, comprising representatives from key areas of the business. It met for the first time last week, agreeing increased funding for the IAEA Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme.
The committee will actively collaborate to initiate partnerships, focusing on three workstreams:
• Education, skills and research
• Culture, health and social development
We look forward to making further funding announcements in the near future.
