PA Consulting (PA), the global innovation and transformation consultancy that's bringing ingenuity to life, announces its support to advance the efforts to meet cost reduction, diversity and innovation targets across the nuclear sector by 2030.
Meeting these goals will strengthen the UK and play a vital role in placing the UK nuclear industry back on the global stage. It will generate significant socio-economic benefits for the UK, ensuring greater job opportunities, cleaner energy and a secure supply of nuclear power for all.
In the first two years since the NSD was signed on 28th of June 2018, substantial progress has been made. Alongside the Nuclear Industry Association (NIA), PA is working with its nuclear peers, including major employers from across the civil and defence sectors, to deliver a compelling vision and ambitious roadmap for the NSD over the next ten years.
As a global and diverse organisation, PA understands how diversity is crucial to empowering innovation and collaboration. Culture, diversity and increased performance are inherently linked. Organisations with both the strongest financial results and the highest-performance culture, have the greatest proportion of women (50 per cent) on their executive leadership teams.
Through PA's Global Innovation and Technology Centre in Cambridge and experienced team of experts, PA helps clients rethink what innovation means to them, how they can work in a more agile way and how they can think differently to create and implement new solutions. PA understands how innovation is crucial for enduring success and we are working with the NSD Working Groups to identify the key challenges to address how a sustainable culture and mindset of innovation can be successfully embedded within the nuclear sector.
Julianne Antrobus, Global Head of Nuclear at PA Consulting, comments:
"We recognise the central role that Nuclear has in the achievement of the carbon-neutral future and our continued support to the NIA and it's leadership of the Sector Deal, demonstrates our commitment.
The gap between renewable capacity and the increasing demands for electricity are not going to be bridged without nuclear and nuclear cannot fulfil it's potential unless there is a step-change in the national strategy. Two years into the sector deal, we are at a tipping point, and PA is excited to play a part in shaping what comes next."
