The Swedish Environmental Movement's Nuclear Waste Secretariat (Miljörörelsens kärnavfallssekretariat, Milkas) is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation founded in October 2004 by the national anti-nuclear group The Swedish Anti-nuclear Movement (Folkkampanjen mot kärnkraft-kärnvapen, FMKK) and Friends of the Earth, Sweden (Jordens Vänner, JV), the Swedish branch of Friends of the Earth International. In May 2019 Friends of the Earth left Milkas and the Swedish organisations Green Women (Gröna kvinnor) and The Swedish Renewable Energies Organization (Sveriges Energiföreningars Riksorganisation, SERO) became members of Milkas.

The Milkas statutes state:

The purpose of the association is to follow and critically scrutinize all projects dealing with management of radioactive waste, and to work for the best long-term and environmentally sound management method.

Milkas:

  • monitors issues dealing with long-lived radioactive waste nationally and internationally,
  • supports the work of national, regional and local environmental organisations on the nuclear waste issue,
  • contributes towards making information related to the nuclear waste management public participation process more comprehensive,
  • takes part in the public participation process within the framework of the environmental impact assessment review process according to the  Swedish Environmental Code, The Act on Nuclear Activities, European Union Directives, and the Espoo Convention, and takes part in cases in the Environmental Court.
