On March 22, we joined 20 NGOs from around the world to call for the responsible and efficient expansion of nuclear energy. We laid out six foundational principles to guide this expansion:

  • Pooling resources, when possible, to generate large order books of specific designs and thereby stimulate upstream investment and share risks;
  • Implementing policies and sending clear signals that support sustained at scale nuclear energy investment as part of broader clean energy, energy security, and economic development planning;
  • Developing and maintaining strong, independent regulatory capabilities while forging international partnerships that benefit from best practices;
  • Expanding opportunities for international collaboration to develop a strong workforce and talent pipeline;
  • Avoiding technologies that can exacerbate security concerns and commit to the highest standards for safeguards; and
  • Planning proactively for the responsible management of spent fuel.
