Environmental Prevention & Awareness

Integrating environmental prevention and awareness in the Organization’s activities is part of the mission of the CERN Occupational Health & Safety and Environmental Protection (HSE) Unit. The HSE Unit strives to keep the impact of the Organization’s activities on the environment as low as possible. Legal requirements and best practices in environmental matters for existing and planned activities are typically identified by the HSE Unit and communicated to the CERN Departments concerned. The HSE Unit also carries out specific environmental studies according to the needs of the Organization and follows-up indicators, defined in collaboration with the CERN Departments, for relevant environmental domains.
