State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom (ROSATOM) is one of global technological leaders, with capacities in the nuclear sector and beyond, and business partners in 50 countries. As one of the pioneers of the nuclear industry, ROSATOM has traditionally been at the forefront of the international nuclear market, including nuclear power plant construction, uranium mining and enrichment, and nuclear fuel fabrication and supply. Today, thanks to the unique expertise accumulated over 75 years, the company is conquering the markets of new promising high-tech products. Hydrogen energy, energy storage, nuclear medicine, wind energy, composite materials, logistics business, environmental solutions - in total, more than a hundred new businesses, which cement ROSATOM’s standing among the leading tech giants. The corporation includes about 400 enterprises and organizations employing a total of more than 330,000 people.
The ROSATOM business strategy is guided by the international sustainable development agenda. ROSATOM makes a significant contribution to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a low-carbon electricity company, developing nuclear, hydrogen and wind energy. Annually, Russian-designed nuclear power plants prevent more than 210 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions, which is the main cause of climate change. Since October 2020, ROSATOM has been a member of the United Nations Global Compact Network, the largest corporate social responsibility and sustainable development initiative for businesses across the world.
Nuclear power is one of low carbon ways of producing electricity along with renewables. According to the study of different energies by the European Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), nuclear power demonstrates the lowest effluents over the lifecycle with an average value of 5.5 gCO2eq/kWh. Electricity generation at NPPs is included in the taxonomy of “green” projects of the Russian Federation (the document defines criteria of projects aimed at achieving goals and main trends of sustainable development of the country, including the combating climate change).
- No. 1 in the world in terms of the number of simultaneously implemented nuclear reactor construction projects (3 units in Russia and 33 units at various implementation stages abroad);
- No. 1 in Russia in terms of electricity power generation (19.66 % of total power generated in Russia);
- 17% of the global nuclear fuel market;
- the world's only nuclear icebreaker fleet.
ROSATOM is a proponent of the uniform national policy and best management practices in nuclear power utilization, the nuclear weapons industry, and nuclear safety. ROSATOM is responsible for meeting Russia's international commitments regarding peaceful uses of nuclear energy and nuclear non-proliferation.
