1011ENEC™s Vision To power the future growth and prosperity of the UAE through a safe and sustainable peaceful nuclear energy program. ENEC was established in 2009 to implement a peaceful nuclear energy program in the UAE in order to address the country™s growing demand for electricity while reducing its carbon footprint and diversifying its energy portfolio. ENEC is wholly- operate, maintain, manage and own nuclear reactors for the purposes of electricity generation, and potentially for desalination. ENEC™s Vision & Mission: energy plant at Barakah, in the Al Dhafra Region of Abu Dhabi Emirate. The Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant (BNEP) consists of four Generation III+ APR-1400 nuclear energy generating units, and their associated facilities, with a combined capacity of approximately 5,600 MW, which is expected to meet up to 25 percent of the UAE™s electricity demand once fully operational.Nuclear Energy Technology: ENEC™s Group Structure In October 2016, ENEC entered a new phase of development by establishing the Nuclear Corporation that will lead the delivery and long-term sustainability of the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program. To achieve this, ENEC announced the establishment of a Joint Venture partnership with the Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), a nuclear energy. Together with KEPCO, ENEC set up two subsidiaries; Nawah, which is responsible for the maintenance and operation of the four Units at the Barakah plant, and BOC responsible for the commercial interests of the project. ENEC is the majority shareholder in both subsidiaries and has included their data as part of the sustainability performance data in this report. Nawah Energy Company Established in 2016, Nawah is mandated to operate and maintain Units 1 to 4 at the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant. As the world™s newest nuclear operator, Nawah will harness the power of nuclear energy to provide a reliable, clean and sustainable supply of low-carbon electricity to contribute to the UAE™s social and economic development and enhance the quality of life for generations to come. Nawah Energy Company: Barakah One Company BOC was established in 2016 and is responsible for managing the commercial commercial lenders, and receiving funds for the electricity generated from Units agreement with Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Company (ADWEC) for the purchase of the electricity to be generated at the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant. The agreement establishes the contractual framework between the two entities for nuclear-generated

1819Sustainability ManagementENEC™s sustainability management strategy focuses its attention on the measurement, management and reporting of performance on the most important economic, environmental and social aspects in order to deliver maximum value for all stakeholders, now and in the future. This strategy outlines three sustainability value pillars and ten sustainability aspects that must be addressed from the construction phase through to plant operations and the ultimate decommissioning of the nuclear energy plants. This strategy also captures the critical elements required for the management and governance of sustainability at ENEC. The custodian of the sustainability strategy is ENEC™s Sustainability and CSR Working Group which is comprised of members from all major functions within ENEC. The group meets, at minimum, once every two months to review progress and drive forward the implementation of sustainability across the organization. Sustainability MaturityTo objectively assess ENEC™s implementation of sustainability management, the Working Group used the Sustainability Maturity Assessment Tool (SMAT) deployed by the ADSG under the leadership of the Environment Agency Œ Abu Dhabi (EAD). The tool has over 150 criteria that assess the sustainability policies, approaches and performance across seven areas, including management, owners, employees, suppliers, customers, community and environment. Responses to criteria were Sustainability Maturity Index201520162017Sustainability maturity (%)57.767.9The results of the SMAT show that ENEC™s sustainability program has continued to mature year-on-year, rising 10% overall from 2015 to 2017, with the biggest increase of 24.4% coming in the management area.
