With a growing focus on environmental justice, the Biden Administration has worked on a range of issues related to the environment and social equity that impact the nuclear and broader energy industry. In 2021, the Administration shared the Justice 40 initiative, part of an Executive Order requiring 40% of the benefit of federal spending on climate and energy to go to disadvantaged communities. This panel discussion will bring together government, academic and industry experts to explore the Justice 40 initiative, its purpose and implementation, and opportunities for the nuclear sector to align with this initiative and broader environmental justice efforts.
