National regulatory bodies and international organisations (IAEA, WANO) strictly regulate and control all phases of construction, operation, and decommissioning of nuclear power plants. The high standards of the nuclear industry define our actions in all areas. Nuclear power plants consume small quantities of natural resources and water and have a small area footprint. While ensuring nuclear safety and the management of radioactive waste, impacts on the environment and the ecosystem are minimal.
