Dhruv Jhaveri coordinated with facilities managers at Amazon Robotics offices/manufacturing/lab spaces in the Boston area to identify Scope 1 and 2 emissions sources and prioritize opportunities to reduce carbon emissions.
Amazon co-founded the Climate Pledge - a commitment to be net zero carbon by 2040 - 10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement. EDF Climate Corps Fellow Dhruv Jhaveri was enlisted by Amazon Robotics to identify, evaluate, and prioritize Scope 1 and 2 emissions reduction opportunities.
Dhruv conducted an energy audit of Amazon Robotics facilities – identifying and calculating energy sources and consumption details. He collaborated with facilities, manufacturing, and R&D managers to measure equipment, HVAC, lighting, and plug-in load details. Using the energy audit, he calculated emissions from the various spaces of the building and included non-energy sources (e.g., leaked refrigerants). Through his audits he prioritized Scope 1 and 2 emission reduction opportunities across dimensions of cost, emissions reduction potential, and return on investment.
By executing what Dhruv identified as “low hanging fruits” (low cost, high impact), there is a potential to reduce carbon emissions by 20% at Amazon Robotics facilities in the Boston area.
