102-11 Precautionary principle or approach

Urenco operates in an industry where the environmental and health risks are well understood, and there are clear rules for responsible management to prevent damage. The area of our operations where the precautionary principle is most relevant is in relation to climate change, where there is still debate over the exact nature of the impacts. Nuclear energy is carbon free at the point of generation, and we have a dedicated net zero taskforce focused on reducing our carbon footprint.

102-46 Defining report content and topic Boundaries

Summary of Urenco’s stakeholder analysis and materiality assessment:

Our materiality study follows the process of identification, prioritisation, validation and review and this is the process we used in defining report content.

Stage 1: Identification
Urenco’s policy is to collate dialogue from all stakeholders at each of our facilities. Stakeholder groups are identified by the impact they have on our business. (i.e. decision makers, influencers and opinion makers). A list of stakeholders with whom we engage is available in our Annual Report 2021 (pg. 29).

Stage 2: Prioritisation
This stage is based on the principles of materiality and stakeholder inclusiveness. Using the views/issues expressed by stakeholders during the reporting period (as recorded in our stakeholder engagement log) quantitative scores were given to each material issue raised. These scores were based on an internal review process, using GRI Standards prioritisation guidelines.
In order to determine what to report on, we have defined thresholds to divide aspects between priority and monitoring.

Stage 3: Validation
In the prioritisation stage a list of material aspects was established and were reviewed by the Sustainability team.
To ensure each aspect is managed correctly, core areas of focus have been established internally which cover these material aspects and guide our sustainability agenda going forward.

Stage 4: Review
Conducted once the report has been published.

102-47 List of material topics

Sustainability Report 2021, pg. 10 

102-48 Restatements of information

Previously reported energy and carbon data has been restated due to methodology changes; the most significant of these for overall carbon figures is that Scope 2 (location-based) carbon data has been restated so that all years use the relevant eGRID factors for US electricity usage, and the relevant UK Government factors for UK electricity usage (previously IEA factors were used for all four countries).

102-49 Changes in reporting

Our Eunice (USA) site is reporting F-gas emissions for the first time.

Please see pg. 10 for details on the material topics in the refreshed sustainability strategy.
