Maria Perez developed an Energy Report and energy slide deck to help Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) engage internal and external stakeholders.


MSK is the world’s largest and oldest cancer center, and has made energy efficiency one of its priorities. EDF Climate Corps fellow, Maria Perez, contributed to MSK efforts with the development of an Energy Report and presentation which outlined MSK’s energy management story. MSK was also interested in laying the foundation to account for Scope 3 emissions.


Perez collected and organized relevant information on 35 energy projects that MSK has completed since 2007 to develop the Energy Report. The report includes details on the performance of past MSK energy projects, information on MSK’s energy portfolio, and associated cost avoidances. The report also featured the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) project at Main Campus and how the project will help MSK in achieving its energy efficiency goals. Turning her attention to Scope 3 emissions, Perez followed the Practice Greenhealth Greenhouse Gas Toolkit to complete a screening calculation in the areas of business travel, employee commute, meat procurement and waste disposal. Based on this information, Perez identified data gaps and the factors that have a significant impact on calculating Scope 3 emissions.

Potential Impact

The MSK Energy Report and presentation tools will help educate internal and external stakeholders about MSK’s extensive energy management and efficiency projects. The Scope 3 screening calculation identified that the largest contributors included employee commuting and waste generation. Utilizing data collection allows MSK to target future efforts to reduce emissions and commitment to environmental sustainability.
