The World Nuclear Association
World Nuclear Association is the international organization that represents the global nuclear industry. Its mission is to promote a wider understanding of nuclear energy among key international influencers by producing authoritative information, developing common industry positions, and contributing to the energy debate.
The membership of the World Nuclear Association encompasses virtually all of the world’s uranium mining, conversion, enrichment and fuel fabrication companies; all major reactor vendors; nuclear utilities providing 70% of world nuclear generation; major nuclear engineering, construction, and waste management companies, and research and development organisations; and companies providing international services in nuclear transport, law, insurance, brokerage, industry analysis and finance.
The World Nuclear Association is the only industry organisation with a global mandate to promote nuclear energy. It is in a unique position to share and advance best practice and common messages globally, working alongside partner organisations: the IAEA, the inter-governmental body for technical and scientific cooperation in nuclear energy; WANO, the industry’s reactor safety organisation; and other regional and national nuclear associations around the world.
The director of the Namibian Uranium Institute serves as a member of the World Nuclear Association’s Working Groups on Radialogical Protection, Decommissioning, Transport, the Fuel Report and ESG. Representatives of two NUA members serve on the WNA’s Communications Advisory Group.
