What the World Needs
the world needs energy
Our world consumes energy every day. To run our homes. Our schools. Our workplaces. For business. For leisure. For our health. As global energy requirements increase over the long term, we must meet that demand in a sustainable way.
energy needs nuclear
Energy consumers respect the environment and see the impact of dramatic shifts to our planet's thermostat. In our rivers and oceans. At our polar ice caps. Up north. Down under. One way to reduce greenhouse gases is a clean electricity source – nuclear.
nuclear needs Cameco
To meet the demand for clean air electricity, the nuclear industry needs a company that it can count on. One that has high-grade assets, industry knowledge and a global focus. Cameco, an investment of choice for sustainable power, makes a key contribution to our world's needs.
Cameco, with its head office in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, is one of the world's largest uranium producers and supplier of conversion services. The company's competitive position is supported by its controlling ownership of the world's largest high-grade reserves and low-cost operations located in northern Saskatchewan. Cameco's uranium products are used to generate clean electricity in nuclear power plants around the world, including Ontario where the company is a limited partner in North America's largest nuclear electricity generating facility. The company also explores for uranium around the world. Cameco's shares trade on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges.
