Over 100 non-industrial organisations call for a just assessment of nuclear energy in the EU Taxonomy of Sustainable Finance. On 24 April 2020, the SNETP Secretariat sent a letter to Vice-presidents of the Commission Frans Timmermans and Valdis Dombrovskis, as well as to the EU Commissioner for Energy, Kadri Simson, calling for a just and timely assessment of nuclear energy in the EU Taxonomy of Sustainable Finance . The letter, signed by over a hundred European non-industrial organizations, recalls the need to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. To reach that goal, nuclear energy, along with renewables, should be the backbone of a carbon-free European power system. It requests that the decisions to include/exclude nuclear from EU taxonomy must be science and fact based (not political or ideological).
