Stakeholder quotations

Aleksandr Makarenko
Executive Director, Nuclear Industry CATF Association

– I would like to note that the reporting activities within ROSATOM are becoming growingly transparent and streamlined from year to year. I am satisfied with the way we have interacted with those who prepare the Report, and we can hear and understand each other.
The preparation of the public report shall aim at demonstrating to the public at large that ROSATOM is not only useful to the state (contributing a great deal to the development of the country’s economy, energy balance and so on), but also provides much benefit to particular people.

Aleksandr Ageev
Director General, Institute of Economic Strategies, Russian Academy of Sciences’ Social Sciences Branch

– In my opinion, everything that has been done by ROSATOM in the field of public reporting deserves much more attention and recognition, both domestic and foreign, since the level of the nuclear industry’s accountability and openness is a tremendous accomplishment both for the country and for the world.
The new reporting philosophy is concerned with the fact that the stakeholders need brief and highly informative materials. Possibly, it makes sense to issue a super-brief version of the report (in 10 to 15 pages) with answers given to the three questions: “What did we achieve in the reporting year? What did we fail to achieve?” and “What do we plan to achieve next year?” It would be frank and outright.

Vladimir Potsyapun
Chairman, Subcommittee for the Legislative Support of the Use of Atomic Energy, Russian Federation State Duma

– In my opinion, an important step in the evolution of reporting at ROSATOM is the trend towards increased availability of reporting information, including understandability of the wording, to the wide audience. The Report is expected to explain things in such a way that it could be understood what ROSATOM has done for the country and the people by the non-expert community as well.
I believe that the usefulness of the Report needs to be assessed: to what extent it has been used by the addressees, how the last year’s report was accepted by society, and how it is assessed. And, based on such assessment, the concept of the next report shall be modernised. It is possible to make the report better only if it is understood how those for whom it is intended respond to it. Such analysis is a complex research task but I think ROSATOM will be able to accomplish it.

Sergey Baranovskiy
President, Green Cross Interregional Environmental Public Organisation

– Thanks to reports, a mechanism is created that demonstrates to the civil society the unique openness of ROSATOM few people would expect. This gives ROSATOM tremendous advantages in its continued dialogue with civil society.
It needs to be baldly said that civil society has never been at 100% in favour of nuclear industry and this is quite natural. Even in developed countries, such as Japan or France, there is a strong opposition to nuclear power. Foreign colleagues face it every day. But it is exactly the openness of ROSATOM and the professionalism with which the annual report is prepared that change social consciousness for the better, making it possible for people to understand what is and will be going on in nuclear power.
