Equally important is our work to continue to educate society on our current capabilities with nuclear technology. Simply mentioning the word “nuclear” elicits strong reactions. Few would dispute that nuclear technologies have life-saving and clean energy-generating potential. Yet, concerns about safety and waste disposal have created lingering reservations about the use of these technologies. Historically, a lack of innovation and stagnant thinking have made it difficult for the nuclear industry to confront its critics, but we are working hard to reinvent the nuclear industry through new ideas and technologies and to more clearly present its benefits to the world.
We are committed to raising awareness of the positive impact advancing nuclear technology has on our lives, from producing net zero-carbon energy to producing the medical radioisotopes used to diagnose patients and deliver lifesaving medical treatment.
We sponsor student STEM engagement to enrich the next generation of scientists and engineers through our partnerships with and sponsorships of various nonprofit organizations and scholarship programs, including:
As part of our diversity, equity and inclusion strategies, we are dedicated to strategically recruiting and hiring interns to provide STEM education and mentorship opportunities to historically underrepresented people.
Practicing environmental stewardship
We are a firm believer in environmental stewardship, which is why we work hard as a company to not only meet but exceed environmental protection regulatory standards. We believe in doing more than keeping our own front porch clean and go out into the community to practice stewardship in the form of service work.
During the 2020 pandemic, our employees rolled up their sleeves to help the environment by picking up trash, planting trees, and growing their own food to support family and friends.
On Earth Day, we collaborated with the City of Janesville to plant 90 prairie grasses near our future headquarters and production facilities to enhance the area and provide a habitat for wildlife and insects.
We are an annual sponsor of the Rotary Botanical Gardens’ Holiday Light Show. This major fundraiser supports the Gardens’ year-round mission of enriching lives through natural beauty, education and the arts.
