CERN Materiality Assessment
CONTEXT and RESULTS
In 2020, CERN published its first public Environment Report. The report details CERN’s environmental record over the years 2017-2018 and was prepared following the internationally-recognised Global Reporting Initiative Standards.
Sofies supported CERN’s responsible team in conducting the materiality assessment – an essential element required by the GRI – thereby engaging with and collecting inputs from a few dozen internal and external stakeholders. This led to the identification of the environmental topics relevant to the CERN.
In addition, Sofies assisted in the development of the report structure and content, and checked the alignment of the reported information with the requirements of the GRI standard.
