«Sustainable development forms a natural part of ROSATOM’s day-to-day operations. Almost 290,000 people are employed in the industry; more than 2 million people live in our 27 nuclear towns and cities in Russia, and we are responsible for their lives literally on a daily basis. Environmental and social responsibility is an integral part of all our operations.

ROSATOM has extensive technological capabilities; we have expertise and solutions that can improve people’s lives, and it is our duty to put these solutions into practice. In Russia, we are responsible for a number of national projects that are relevant to sustainable development goals in one way or another. As part of the Ecology National Project, we are developing a system for managing hazard class 1 and 2 waste; we are participating in the Healthcare National Project and are responsible for developing the Northern Sea Route».
