Our Sustainability

Sustainability is part of Sogin's mission and, over time, has become increasingly important in the governance and management of its core business. For Sogin, being sustainable means integrating sustainability principles into business processes to improve the organisation - based on the principles of equity and diversity - and, at the same time, to increase the trust of stakeholders, both internal and external, by responding in a timely manner to their expectations.

In 2023, the Sogin Group adopted its first Sustainability Plan, a milestone on the path undertaken and reported on since 2005, reinforcing its contribution to achieving the sustainable development goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda.

This document, which is the result of extensive involvement of the Group's people, bears witness to a growing commitment to planning activities that integrate sustainability and innovation, with a view to contributing to the sustainable transition of the national economy and the Group's position on ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) issues.

In particular, the Plan, based on six sustainability commitments that define its directions and priorities, foresees a positive impact on:

  1. core business, based on the measurement and improvement of decommissioning and waste management projects, in terms of sustainability;
  2. reputation, with the representation of Sogin as an entity that contributes to the sustainable development of the national economy;
  3. transparency towards stakeholders, by developing activities to involve stakeholders, especially in the communities and territories where Sogin operates, with particular reference to the National Repository;
  4. internal and organisational coherence, by enhancing the contributions of all Group's functions and systematising the actions that are already inherent in the company's operations and mission;
  5. development of the national economy, by adhering to the programmatic intentions of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP) for a new, more responsible, ethical and sustainable business model;
  6. achievement of the United Nations Agenda 2030 goals, in particular with a concrete commitment to 11 of the 17 SDGs.


Circularity as a cardinal principle for the planning, design and management of the various activities envisaged in the decommissioning plans for nuclear plants and in the siting of the National Repository and Technology Park, implementing an assessment and providing for appropriate mitigation of their overall environmental and social impact.


Value shared with the territory

Creating value for the communities and territories where the Sogin Group operates, in a shared and participatory way.


Enhancement of skills

Enhancement of skills, through actions aimed at promoting the value of knowledge and ensuring the constant development of the organisation, the strengthening of know-how and the transfer of knowledge between generations.



Accountability as a form of responsibility and transparency towards stakeholders, implementing a planning, assessment, monitoring and communication system based on the three ESG pillars: Environment, Social and Governance.



Involvement, through a proactive and inclusive attitude of stakeholders, to foster the building of relationships of trust and the creation of opportunities for structured confrontation.


Organisational culture

Organisational culture allowing work environments to be increasingly conducive to innovation and the integration of sustainability, in its three ESG dimensions, into all business processes.



The Sustainability Plan naturally permeates the various business, decision-making and operational processes of the Sogin Group, with the aim of creating sustainable value for stakeholders in pursuit of its strategic activities to ensure the country's nuclear safety.

Each process contributes to the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

A set of activities that are planned, authorised by the relevant bodies and implemented at the various nuclear sites, assessing their impact, not only from an economic point of view, but also from a social and environmental perspective.

It is a country project for the safety of future generations and the definitive closure of the nuclear cycle, and its siting and actual development require a constant involvement of local and national territories and institutions.

A set of activities for the constant monitoring, both conventional and radiological, of the territories hosting the decommissioned plants, providing information to the relevant bodies and local communities.

The implementation of a strategy to minimise the waste produced by decommissioning activities and to send a high percentage (about 89%) of the total dismantled materials for recovery.

The adoption of the principles of green public procurement and joint responsibility, while actively contributing to the development of a national decommissioning supply chain.

A set of measures to protect the health and safety of workers and personnel management policies aimed at the growth of know-how and professional development.

The study and implementation of innovative technological solutions, often prototypes, for nuclear decommissioning and waste management, both radioactive and conventional, with a view to sustainable development.
