Uranium Energy Corp (NYSE American: UEC, the “Company” or “UEC”) is pleased to announce the completion of its inaugural Sustainability Report (the “Report”). The Report, which includes the Company’s achievements for Fiscal 2022 and plans for Fiscal 2023, is available on the Company website at https://www.uraniumenergy.com/sustainability/ and has been filed with the SEC through EDGAR on Form 8-K.
Amir Adnani, CEO and President stated: “This inaugural Sustainability Report demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the environment, our people, the communities we work in and our high corporate governance standards. Our Environmental, Social and Governance program, launched in 2021, formalizes and builds upon the strong environmental, health and safety record the Company prides itself on. 2022 was a remarkable growth year for UEC as we invested over half billion dollars by making three highly accretive acquisitions, including Uranium One Americas, Inc., UEX Corporation and Rio Tinto’s world-class Roughrider Project.”
Mr. Adnani continued: “We are particularly pleased with the progress made on measuring our scope 1 and 2 emissions in Texas and achieving carbon neutral status at our Hobson Central Processing Plant. Additionally, our Wyoming reclamation program made great progress that is now in the final regulatory stages of returning 68 acres of in situ-recovery wellfield property to its landowner. Reclamation is an important part of the uranium project lifecycle, ensuring the restoration of affected nature and biodiversity at our project sites.”
Mr. Adnani concluded: “Sustainability, accountability, and good stewardship have been central to the way we do business since the Company’s founding 18 years ago and will be a foundational value system to support our future ambitions. UEC is powering the clean energy future as a leading supplier of low-cost, environmentally-friendly uranium for the nuclear industry from proven, politically stable resource jurisdictions.”
