Executive Board

  • Thomas Ernst Chief Executive Officer Deep geological repositories are best suited to ensuring the safe long-term management of radioactive waste.
  • Reto Beutler Division Head Finance, Controlling & Human Resources Realising safe deep geological disposal of radioactive waste is the responsibility of the current generation. However, sustainable solutions also have to be economically viable.
  • Markus Fritschi Division Head Collaboration Sectoral Plan & Public Outreach Our duty to future generations is to implement this environmental protection task in Switzerland without delay and not to put it on the back-burner. The technical basis for achieving this already exists.
  • Piet Zuidema Overall Project Manager Sectoral Plan Stage 2 The research and investigation programmes carried out by Nagra have resulted in a good level of knowledge. In Switzerland, we have host rocks of excellent quality for confining radioactive waste. Geological repositories can be realised with the required level of safety.
