World Nuclear Association’s mission is to facilitate the growth of the nuclear sector by connecting players across the value chain, representing the industry’s position in key world forums, and providing authoritative information and influencing key audiences.
Our Mission
  • We connect leaders and experts across all aspects of the nuclear industry to enable them to collaborate, conduct research, develop best practices and shape joint positions.
  • We represent the nuclear industry in key global forums that influence the development, deployment and operation of nuclear energy.
  • We inform key audiences on nuclear energy in an authoritative, comprehensive and accessible manner.
  • We influence decision-makers, organizations and media to position nuclear energy as an essential contributor to sustainable development.

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.

All of our activities revolve around three strategic areas:

Nuclear Industry Cooperation
We act as a global forum and commercial meeting place for leaders and specialists representing all aspects of the nuclear industry. The Association provides a vehicle for members to shape joint positions on economic, safety, and environmental issues through the Working Groups. We represent the industry in key world forums that influence the nuclear industry’s regulatory and policy environment, such as the IAEA and NEA advisory committees on transport and all aspects of nuclear safety; the United Nations policy forums focused on sustainable development and climate change; and ICRP and Ospar deliberations on radiological protection.

We also work in partnership with the IAEA, WANO, and the OECD-NEA to enhance nuclear education and build nuclear leadership, through the World Nuclear University.
Nuclear Information Management
We provide trustworthy, comprehensive and easily accessible information on nuclear power via the website, which serves as the world’s baseload nuclear information source, and via World Nuclear News, the leading online news service on developments related to nuclear power.
Nuclear Energy Communication
With a goal to increase global support for nuclear energy among key stakeholders, our role is to represent the nuclear industry’s interests where the energy debate is taking place. By coordinating on key messages with our partners, we deliver targeted information to decision-makers and influencers, including the media and international organisations that have an interest in energy-related issues.

Other organisations include national and regional nuclear associations representing the industry around the world, and international organisations dealing with energy issues.
