Beautiful Nuclear

The Beautiful Nuclear report shows how nuclear energy helps meet all 17 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs). No other electricity generation technology can match this diversity of beneficial impacts. The priority for preventing irreversible climate change is decarbonization. In the context of the increasing urgency of the need to replace fossil fuels, the case for expanding the range of low carbon options, including nuclear is crucial. We call for a whole system approach to the energy transition and for evidence-based decision making.
