Green Cross Switzerland, in cooperation with Prof. Jonathan M. Samet, Director of the Institute for Global Health at the University of Southern California (USC), presents the first comprehensive report regarding the costs of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.


The Chernobyl cost report shows the findings of an extensive review of existing literature to obtain a more precise estimate of the financial value of all the negative effects of a reactor accident. This advances the understanding of society’s awareness of the effective costs of nuclear energy, reflecting not only the construction, operation and shutdown of a plant, but also the costs of nuclear disasters. The new report provides an overview of the financial costs of the Chernobyl reactor accident over the past 30 years.
