Tani joined GHGMI in the summer of 2019 as Program Officer. His expertise targets carbon offsets, Article 6 of the Paris Agreement, and GHG verification. Tani has over 8 years of experience with climate change mitigation and adaptation work within academia and the business community. Tani works for a sustainable future, recognizing that that necessitates liberation for all people.
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 emission reduction projects and engage students in meeting their carbon neutrality goals through curriculum integration and research. He strategically led the Duke University Carbon Offsets Initiative from 2017-2019.
