Climate action

Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts

Environment and the transition to net zero is a key theme within Urenco’s sustainability strategy. Urenco is committed to contributing to a sustainable, net zero future. We are proud of our role in facilitating low carbon electricity generation for consumers around the world.

Our contribution

We play a crucial role in the nuclear fuel cycle and contribute to the rapid decarbonisation of countries’ energy mix by facilitating the production of low carbon energy. Nuclear is required to tackle climate change, as it is the only proven, scalable and reliable low carbon energy source and will continue to play a pivotal role in decreasing the world’s reliance on fossil fuels. We are also taking action through our commitment to reach net zero within our own operations by 2040.

Our Social Impact Partnership with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) includes working together on their Environment, Food and Agriculture programme, which aims to develop sustainable agricultural practices for mitigation of greenhouse gases (GHGs).
