The Net Zero Nuclear Industry Pledge initiative aims to achieve this result by 2050.
At the invitation of World Nuclear Association, ROSATOM has joined the Net Zero Nuclear Industry Pledge, a groundbreaking initiative aimed at tripling global nuclear capacity by 2050. The pledge, spearheaded by leaders in the nuclear energy sector, underscores the pivotal role nuclear power plays in achieving clean, low-carbon electricity and combating climate change.
The Net Zero Nuclear Industry Pledge, introduced during the “COP28 Atoms4NetZero: Accelerating Deployment of Nuclear Energy” event, as part of the official program of the 28th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP28) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC COP28) calls upon governments, multilateral development banks, and the World Bank to ensure that nuclear energy receives climate finance equal to other clean energy sources. This financial support will enable the nuclear industry to deploy capacity at scale worldwide, contributing significantly to climate change mitigation.
Kirill Komarov, First Deputy Director General for Development and International Business of ROSATOM, expressed ROSATOM’s commitment to decarbonization goals, stating, “At ROSATOM, we recognize the urgent need to address climate change, and nuclear energy is a proven, rapid, and resilient solution for deep decarbonization. By joining the Net Zero Nuclear Industry Pledge, we affirm our dedication to work collaboratively with governments and stakeholders to triple nuclear capacity by 2050. This initiative aligns with our vision for a sustainable energy future, and we applaud the governments that have already committed to this transformative goal.”
