People Strong - Innovation Driven

Corporate Citizenship

At BWXT, our culture is built on core values that include honesty, integrity, safety, quality, innovation and stewardship, which guide our actions. We are committed to conducting our business in a sustainable, socially responsible and ethical manner; providing good working conditions and eliminating workplace injuries; reducing our carbon footprint; and lowering operating costs by actively managing and reducing energy usage, waste generation and greenhouse gas emissions.  We are dedicated to the long-term well-being of the facilities we own and operate, the communities in which we operate and the environment that surrounds them all.

People Strong, Innovation Driven

These words embody who we are as a company. At BWXT, we trace our history to the invention of the water tube boiler in 1856 and providing boiler equipment to power the New York subway system as well as military and commercial ships.  Following World War II, we designed and fabricated components for the first nuclear-powered submarine and continue to supply nuclear propulsion systems to the U.S. Navy today.  We have continued to build on our steam generator and nuclear expertise to enhance offerings to our existing government and commercial customers. Today, we are designing nuclear thermal propulsion systems for NASA and introducing a new medical radioisotope technology that will provide a stable supply of molybdenum-99 for use in medical diagnostic imaging and mitigate radioactive waste streams and nuclear proliferation concerns in the existing supply chain.  Our innovative spirit propels us toward developing new technologies that benefit our customers, build our business and enhance our lives.

Nuclear Leadership

BWXT has a unique and leading role in the nuclear industry. The products we deliver to our government and commercial customers provide security and reliable energy. The benefits of nuclear energy as a clean energy source include providing long-lasting electricity to millions of homes in North America alone with near-zero carbon emissions. We see the capabilities nuclear energy possesses to power large cities, communities and transportation as well as its current and potential influence in modern medicine.  We also contribute to a cleaner environment through our environmental cleanup services on U.S. Department of Energy Environmental Management projects.

Our achievements in the Canadian nuclear industry demonstrate how economic and environmental sustainability can be aligned. In 2017, we invested in additional nuclear services capabilities to support Ontario as the first jurisdiction in North America to fully eliminate coal as a source of electricity generation. BWXT Canada’s roles in Ontario Power Generation’s Darlington Refurbishment and Bruce Power’s Life Extension Project are indicative of our clean energy commitment.

Sustainability

At BWXT, innovation is at the heart of everything we do and sustainability is no exception.  Through our business strategy and manufacturing innovations, we are committed to minimizing our environmental footprint by reducing energy consumption (our major source of greenhouse gas emissions), resource use and waste generation.  We believe that economic, environmental and social objectives can be achievable simultaneously, and that the benefits we provide to our customers, employees and communities will ultimately accrue to us and our shareholders. 

We remain committed to environmental, social and economic sustainability as reflected in our Core Values – People, Safety, Security, Quality, Trusted Relationships, Growth, Innovation and Stewardship.
