Dubai, United Arab Emirates – 2 December 2023

A historic Ministerial Declaration signed today at the COP28 UN climate change conference in Dubai by more than twenty countries sets a clear goal of tripling global nuclear energy capacity by 2050.

The declaration was announced on the second day of the world climate action summit by the heads of state of France, Romania, Sweden, Poland, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Belgium, and the United States Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, as well as energy ministers and senior officials of the other countries signing the declaration.

Speaking at the launch of the Ministerial Declaration, Dr Sama Bilbao y León, Director General, World Nuclear Association, representing the global nuclear industry said:

“The significance of the Ministerial Declaration cannot be overstated. The countries supporting this declaration are making a resolute commitment, placing nuclear energy at the heart of their strategies for climate change mitigation. Their vision is one that strives for a sustainable, cost-effective, secure, and equitable energy mix.

“If we can collectively realize this ambitious goal, tripling nuclear capacity, we have the power to fulfil the promise of nuclear energy — to decarbonize entire economies and provide clean electricity to every corner of the globe. Together, let us embark on this journey towards a cleaner, sustainable future.”
