The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has a critical need for new, clean sources of electricity triggered by a growing population and economy. After evaluating a wide array of energy options, nuclear energy emerged as the right choice to deliver the needed baseload electricity with nearly zero carbon emissions.
During operation, nuclear energy facilities produce no carbon emissions. More than one-third of man-made greenhouse gases are caused by burning fossil fuels to generate electricity. Because nuclear energy facilities do not burn fossil fuels, they do not emit these gases. When fully operational, the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant is expected to save the UAE up to 21 million tons of carbon emissions every year.
The Nawah Nuclear Safety Policy serves as the overarching policy for and encompasses within it focused elements of Reactor, Radiological, Industrial, Environmental and Security. The Nawah Nuclear Safety Policy is aligned with the Nawah Integrated Management System (NIMS) Policy.
Nawah leadership is committed to the following Environmental Safety attributes as an element of the Nawah Nuclear Safety Culture:
- Protecting the environment, biodiversity, ecosystems, and cultural heritage.
- Preventing pollution and greenhouse gas emission into the environment.
- Employing a systematic approach to manage environmental and corporate social responsibilities.
- Full compliance with all environmental requirements and commitments.
- Considering the environment, sustainability and waste management matters equally with other critical business activities.
- Promoting a healthy environmental and sustainability culture as part of its safety culture among its employees, contractors, and suppliers.
- Continual improvement of the integrated management system (IMS) to enhance environmental performance.

World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO)
The World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO) unites every company and country in the world that has an operating commercial nuclear power plant to achieve the highest possible standards of nuclear safety. WANO exists purely to help its members reach the top levels of operational safety and reliability. This is achieved through a series of highly regarded programmes, such as peer reviews, access to technical support and a global library of operating experience.
WANO is a non-profit organization and does not advocate for, or on behalf of, the nuclear industry. With safety as the only goal, WANO helps operators communicate effectively and share information openly.
With offices in London and Hong Kong, and regional centers in Moscow, Atlanta, Tokyo and Paris, WANO cuts across political barriers and interests. WANO membership is at a worldwide level. Upon joining, each member is required to affiliate with at least one regional center.
WANO ensures the transfer of operational experience from one member to another through a system of peer reviews. These peer reviews help members compare themselves against standards of excellence through an in-depth, objective review of their operations by an independent team from outside their organization. The result is a direct and straightforward report that highlights strengths and areas for improvement in nuclear safety and plant reliability. Members learn and share worldwide insights on safe and reliable plant operation and thereby improve their own performance. The same principles extend to companies, as well as stations, in the form of the corporate peer review.
