Holtec International recognizes the importance of building and maintaining relationships with its key external stakeholders. This is accomplished through frequent and timely communications built upon trust and transparency.
Holtec’s communications and outreach efforts are designed to maintain an open line of communication with its stakeholders. This includes interaction with federal government entities like the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE), the U.S. Department of Justice (USDOJ) and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) as well as numerous energy and environmental regulatory agencies at the state level. This outreach also extends around the world where Holtec works closely with host governments in the many countries where we have ongoing projects.
Most importantly, we take great pride in our strong relationships with the communities where we operate. Ongoing communications with local municipal governments and civic groups are vital to being a good neighbor. To Holtec, it’s not just where we do business but also our home too. In addition, Holtec welcomes ongoing, constructive dialogue with groups who share its commitment to protecting public health and safety and the environment.
Holtec uses the publication Holtec Highlights to report major events to our stakeholders. In addition, time-sensitive and newsworthy events of public/media interest are shared as news releases or via Holtec’s social media channels. This website contains all recent Holtec Highlights as well as news releases from Holtec and others relevant to Holtec’s operations.
