Urenco publishes net zero transition plan

14 December 2023

Urenco has today published its first net zero transition plan, accounting for how it intends to cut its emissions as a company in less than two decades. 

The plan sets out where Urenco’s carbon emissions are in its business and how it is taking action to reduce them to zero; by 2030 for scopes 1 and 2, and by 2040 overall.  

The UK’s Transition Plan Taskforce (TPT) called on companies to voluntarily produce transition plans for their net zero journey, to ensure they are transparent and accountable for their efforts. 
Urenco will produce subsequent updates of the plan on an annual basis, reaffirming its commitment to reaching net zero and striving to overcome any resulting challenges.

Head of Sustainability at Urenco, Robert Little, said: 

“Last year we were proud to announce new, ambitious net zero targets as a company and this transition plan demonstrates how we are turning ambition into action for a net zero world. 

“Sustainability is a part of everything we do at Urenco, and this means doing more than just taking care of our own emissions. We are also committed to providing leadership alongside others to help decarbonise global energy grids and the nuclear fuel cycle itself.   

“We must all rise to the challenge to substantially reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and limit the damage of climate change.”
