ENVIRONMENT & SAFETY

Environmental Assessments

At Cameco, we are committed to protecting the health and safety of people and the environment. Any activity or project that could impact the environment is subject to a thorough Environmental Assessment (EA).

Through this process, we study the environment around the project area to gain an understanding of potential effects on air and water quality, wildlife, plants, noise, human health, aboriginal activities, and the use of land and natural resources. We actively engage local residents to listen to and address concerns that they may have regarding the project.

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission oversees environmental assessments undertaken by Cameco to ensure that the environment and people are protected.
