Cameco is one of the world's largest uranium producers. As we seek to bring the benefits of nuclear energy to the world, we're committed to delivering our products safely and responsibly.
Sustainability programming is a core strength for Cameco, and we continue to deliver top-tier performance in the areas of worker safety, community relations and environmental responsibility.
Our sustainable development report tells our stakeholders how we’re performing against key indicators that measure our social, environmental and economic impacts in the areas that matter most to them.
Our current report
2016 marked Cameco’s sixth sustainable development report; the first using the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) 4.0 Sustainability Guidelines. While we do a full report every two years, we provide all our stakeholders with updated information in the years between.
Our 2017 Sustainable Development GRI Index Update shows Cameco’s performance on 32 key GRI indicators as well as two corporate indicators unique to the company. Some of the highlights include:
- A continued focus on local spending with 70% procured from local suppliers.
- Zero significant environmental incidents for the ninth consecutive year.
- Reduction to lost-time incidents (LTI). Two operations achieved more than 10 years without an LTI and five operations achieved at least one year without an LTI.
- In 2016, from a very small operational footprint with the surface area of about five square kilometers, our McArthur River and Cigar Lake operations in northern Saskatchewan produced enough uranium to generate electricity for every Canadian household for four years.
- Continued high levels of public support in locations where we operate.
