Sustainability

For Orano being a sustainable company means balancing our economic, environmental and social responsibilities. Our commitments to sustainability are deployed through our policies and programs implemented in areas such as human resources and diversity, occupational health and safety, environmental protection and community engagement.

Display the detail

Our sustainability relies on four pillars

  • To be a leader by adopting national and international industry best practices for the development and operation of Orano’s mining activities.
  • To comply with all rules and regulations, and Orano group policies.
  • To reduce and control risks and thereby protect the health and safety of employees, members of the public, and the environment.
  • To demonstrate responsible mining development through active, transparent dialogue and consultation with our stakeholders.

The Orano group’s Mining Business Unit publishes annually its Corporate Social Responsibility Report, which outlines its sustainability commitment and the performance of its mining operations worldwide.

Production and Financials

Orano’s economic sustainability relies upon our ability to produce at a competitive cost and achieve production targets for the timely delivery of our product to our customers, even in a challenging uranium market. In 2016, Orano’s share of Saskatchewan uranium production was 11.8 million pounds of uranium concentrate and revenues of $570 million CAD.
