”I believe CERN should become a role model for an environmentally-aware scientific laboratory.”
- Fabiola Gianotti, Director-General of CERN
Environmental protection group
CERN is committed to limiting the impact of the Organization’s activities on the environment. Within the HSE Unit, this goal is achieved mainly by integrating pollution prevention, waste minimisation and conservation of resources into existing and planned activities in order to limit their environmental impact (environmental prevention and awareness).
