At NNL we are fully committed to all aspects of equality, diversity and inclusion (ED&I). I am therefore delighted to introduce our agenda, which demonstrates our commitment to diversity and the way we manage our business. Our approach to developing this strategy has been truly inclusive with input across all our key stakeholders including our board, trade unions and employees.
The Advanced Nuclear for Heat and Hydrogen report highlights the key enablers for advanced nuclear technology to play a wider role in decarbonising society and helping the UK to reach its Net Zero commitment by 2050.
The work draws on a series of interviews with acknowledged nuclear industry experts, and others from across the wider energy sector, Government agencies and the international community.
NNL is fully committed to all aspects of diversity and inclusion. Our 2019 people plan was designed with input across all our key stakeholders including our Board, trade unions and employees and had a strong equality and diversity focus.
In 2019, the UK's National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) completed a benchmarking exercise to explore the Knowledge Management activities and approaches of organisations from across the UK and
The purpose of the exercise was to identify good practice and to share learning across NNL, the organisations involved, and wider.
The next decade will see tremendous changes to the nuclear sector worldwide with an expansion in nuclear new build, a growth in decommissioning and waste management and the prospect of Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) and accident tolerant fuel. We are at an exciting time in our industry.
For the UK’s National Nuclear Laboratory this presents an opportunity to make an impact. Positioned at the frontier of nuclear science and technology ensures NNL offers the best strategic technical advice, provides the best integrated solutions and delivers innovative products and services to industry for the wider benefit of society.
This strategic plan does not represent business as usual for National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL). It comes at a seminal moment, as the nuclear sector navigates a turning point, and as the UK's Industrial Strategy and Nuclear Sector Deal set a new course for the future - and so we must transform our business. Our people are at the heart of that transformation. It is their talent and expertise that drive our business.
