AREVA celebrates France’s EU presidency

Press release

June 30, 2008

AREVA is especially pleased to be partnering the festivities to be held on Monday, June 30 at the Eiffel Tower, as France takes over the EU's rotating presidency.

With 43,000 employees in Europe and over half of its revenues earned in EU countries, AREVA is a true European group that owes much of its success to the quality and intensity of the industrial partnership between its French and German teams.

On the strength of its French roots and European commitments, AREVA’s aim is to take an active part in the programs initiated by the EU’s major electrical utilities, and offer its expertise to the energy debate currently raging across the continent.

At a time when the whole of Europe is facing issues relating to the secure supply and price of energy, as well as the need to effectively combat climate change, AREVA, as world leader in nuclear energy, is proposing solutions for generating CO2-free electricity together with reliable power transmission systems.

For Anne Lauvergeon, CEO of AREVA, “Being part of this celebration to mark France’s accession to the EU presidency is AREVA’s way of reiterating its attachment to Europe and its role as a key player among the major electrical utilities of the 27 member states.” She also went on to “wish the French presidency every success.”
