Environmental stewardship is a core value of Sellafield Ltd. This is achieved by preventing pollution, avoiding or reducing discharges and managing waste. We also minimise our impact on the environment through continual improvement in our processes and activities and striving for excellence in our environmental performance.

We work hard to minimise the environmental impact of our operations across all areas of on-site activities; considering the complete life cycle of projects from design through to decommissioning.
