Orano is also committed to promoting local biodiversity among stakeholders, reporting on this topic and raising awareness of the need to protect it among the various parties involved, including on-site employees. Partnerships with NGOs, public authorities and experts are also encouraged to benefit from advice and support measures to promote biodiversity. Orano plans to assess its overall biodiversity footprint in 2023 using the GBS tool developed by Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations Biodiversité. The Group’s overall results and those specific to Orano Mining will be analyzed and used to identify the main opportunities to be leveraged.
At the Orano Malvési site, a project for the environmental enhancement of the former regulation basin has been proposed in partnership with a firm specializing in biodiversity.
At the Orano la Hague
site, offsetting measures are underway to promote the development of outstanding biodiversity, particularly in the Marais Roger area north of the site.
