CERN has always taken environmental considerations into account when designing and implementing new infrastructures. However, environmental priorities have evolved significantly over the last two decades and CERN adapts its infrastructure and associated activities accordingly. Anticipating future environmental concerns, including the prevention of environmental incidents, is the motivation behind CERN’s vision for environmentally responsible research.
This talk will present how CERN is organized to manage and predict environmental issues, in particular linked to energy, greenhouse gas emissions, water, biodiversity and waste. Furthermore, the talk will highlight the current and future projects aimed at limiting the impact of the Organization on the environment.
