Tani Colbert-Sangree

Program Officer

Tani joined GHGMI in the summer of 2019 as Program Officer focusing initially on carbon offsets and climate change policy. Tani has over 8 years of experience with climate change mitigation and adaptation work within academia and the business community.

He obtained a certificate of proficiency from GHGMI in 2015 for GHG Verification for Inventories and Projects while running his consultancy, Tomorrow’s Climate Solutions. Tani co-founded the Offset Network in 2016, a peer review system enabling universities to verify their emissions reduction projects and engage students in meeting their carbon neutrality goals through curriculum integration and research. Since then he has created structures to facilitate university offset purchases and project development, and he led Duke University’s Carbon Offsets Initiative.
