Studies of forward processes are important tests of the standard model and inputs for Monte Carlo tuning. A measurement of the energy flow in the forward pseudorapidity region of CMS, 3 : 15 < vertical bar eta vertical bar < 4 : 9, is presented for 3 values of the centre-of-mass energy root s = 0.9 TeV, 2.36 TeV and 7 TeV. The forward energy flow is measured for minimum bias events and for events with a central dijet system the transverse energy of which provides a hard scale. The energy flow is compared to various Monte Carlo models with different multiparton interaction schemes. A study of forward jets in the pseudorapidity range 3 : 2 < vertical bar h vertical bar < 4 : 7 is presented for root s = 7 TeV.
