Managing Sustainability

We take a rigorous approach to managing sustainability at Urenco, ensuring robust governance in order to meet our legal obligations and fulfil the high levels of social and environmental performance we expect of ourselves.

Supporting our sustainability endeavours

The overall responsibility for sustainability lies with our Director of Corporate Communications, PR and Sustainability. In 2015, we established a sustainability programme which oversees the delivery of all sustainability initiatives at Urenco. In 2015, we also developed our Sustainability Champions, who, under the guidance of the Sustainability Sponsors of each focus area, helped us set non-financial key performance indicators (KPIs) for the first time. The collection, interrogation and sharing of sustainability data enables us to track our progress against our KPIs, deliver improvements each year and set additional targets for the future.

Sustainability Committee

To augment and support our management of sustainability, in 2013 Urenco's Board established a specific committee, the Sustainability Committee, consisting of members from each of the three shareholders. The Committee’s meetings are attended by members of the Board and Senior Management from across the organisation. This approach ensures that sustainability is incorporated into all operational and strategic decision making and embedded across the organisation, with Board level involvement demonstrating the depth of our commitment.

Accountability and rigour

We have made significant progress in recent years in the way we manage sustainability at Urenco. Each quarter, sustainability data is collected, interrogated and shared with our Executive Management. The Managing Directors of each enrichment facility are accountable for the sustainability performance of their sites, with additional accountability assigned to the Sustainability Sponsors of each focus area. Each Sponsor is responsible for defining the policy which guides our business activities within their specific focus area, as part of our wider sustainability strategy.

Working with our regulators

In each of the countries where we operate, we work closely with our regulators and report to them on an ongoing basis. In each jurisdiction, government authorities regulate and approve the design and operating principles of our sites to ensure safety and security. They also monitor and inspect them to check compliance with all relevant legislation.

Informing and involving our employees

In order to provide regular updates on developments within the organisation, our Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Financial Officer and the Managing Directors of each enrichment facility communicate regularly with our employees. In addition, the CEO is invited to an annual forum of employee nominated representatives from across the organisation who are brought together to discuss business matters. Any issues raised are accounted for in our stakeholder dialogue.
