Subject: Fwd: What is LHC experiment carbon footprint?
Dear Mr Reyburn,
Information about CERN and the environment is available through: http://environmental-impact.web.cern.ch/environmental-impact/, where you will find information in English about all aspects of CERN’s influence on the environment. The most recent independent report, published by the Swiss Federal Office for Public Health is only available in French, Italian and German. You can find it here: http://www.bag.admin.ch/themen/strahlung/02839/04088/index.html?lang=fr.
Our energy suppliers are two Swiss largely hydro-electric based firms, and EDF, which is largely nuclear. CERN’s carbon footprint is correspondingly low.
Regards, James Gillies
Hi CERN people
Is there an English version of the social and environmental impact assessment for the present LHC experiment?
I have been trying to find out what is the carbon footprint for the LHC experiment but i can’t find this info on the CERN website under Environment (.http://cernenviro.web.cern.ch/CERNenviro/web/main/main.php?lang=en)
Also, what measures are being made by way of a complementary offset for any negative environmental damages?
Could you provide the answers to these basic questions?
