Urenco recognises Global Goals Week

21 September 2020

Sustainability is integral to everything we do at Urenco. For half a century, our core business of enriching uranium has enabled carbon-free electricity generation for the world.

As part of our commitment to sustainability, Urenco recognises Global Goals Week and its aim to raise awareness of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The SDGs are a universal set of goals to end poverty, protect the environment and ensure prosperity for all. Urenco has analysed the SDGs and assessed where our operations have the potential to positively impact the 17 goals. In the areas where we make the biggest impact, we have published a synopsis of how our business aligns to each specific goal.

For example, in alignment with 'SDG 5: Gender Equality', we want to create a workforce that reflects the society in which we operate. We believe that promoting and supporting inclusiveness, and making the most of diversity, is good business, creates a safer workplace, enhances decision making, improves performance and most importantly is the right thing to do.

Furthermore, in alignment with ‘SDG 13: Climate Action’, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has recognised that nuclear energy has a critical role to play in electricity generation while limiting the impact of climate change to secure a 1.5 degree pathway by 2050.
