EU recognises role nuclear can play in fighting climate change

28 november 2019

The European parliament has adopted a resolution on the 2019 UN climate change conference (COP25) in Madrid that recognises the role nuclear energy can play in meeting climate objectives as a zero-greenhouse gas emissions source.

The resolution, adopted today by 430 votes in favour, 190 against and 34 abstentions, said nuclear energy can ensure a significant share of electricity production in Europe, but in view of waste it also requires a “medium- and long-term strategy that takes into account technological advances” to improve its sustainability.
