Is nuclear energy sustainable? - a technical and legal excursus

Expert response to the Joint Research Centre’s report “Technical assessment of nuclear
energy with respect to the ‛Do No Significant Harm’ criteria in Regulation (EU)
2020/852, the‛ Taxonomy Regulation’” by the Federal Office for the Safety of Nuclear
Waste Management (BASE) as well as „Nuclear energy and the taxonomy regulation“ (Legal Opinion) by Redeker Sellner Dahs.

There is an intense ongoing discussion at European and international level about whether
nuclear energy can be classified as an ecologically sustainable economic activity. The
reasons for this are the European Commission’s current review process in the scope of
the development of technical criteria for the Taxonomy Regulation and the corresponding
review report of the Joint Research Centre.

The Federal Office for the Safety of Nuclear Waste Management and the law firm Redeker
Sellner Dahs have conducted a technical and legal review of the classification of nuclear
energy use according to the Taxonomy Regulation on behalf of the German Federal
Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety and of the
Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Protection, Environment, Energy, Mobility,
Innovation and Technology.

In its expert response, BASE concludes that the JRC report only incompletely addresses
the risks and negative consequences of nuclear energy use. In particular, the undue
burdens on future generations are not sufficiently taken into account.

In its legal opinion, the law firm Redeker Sellner Dahs examines whether nuclear power is
covered by the scope of the ‛Taxonomy Regulation‛, explains the Regulation's increased
level of protection in view of the precautionary principle, and classifies the findings of the
JRC report in this respect from a legal perspective.

The authors invite you to a event on legal and technical aspects

on Tuesday, 9 November 2021
at the Permanent Representation of Austria to the European Union
Avenue de Cortenbergh 30, 1040 Brussels
from 2pm to 3:30pm

The speakers will be Jochen Ahlswede (Head of Research Department at BASE) and Dr.
Simone Lünenbürger and Dr. Korbinian Reiter (both representing Redeker Sellner Dahs).
