Tani believes that carbon offsets are a tool to expedite implementation and expand the realm of possible climate change solutions. In his role as the program coordinator for the Duke Carbon Offsets Initiative (DCOI) Tani identifies offset projects to meet Duke University's 2024 carbon neutrality commitment. Housed within a research university these projects provide educational opportunities and explore novel approaches to emission reductions. Tani seeks to share these project experiences, and any tools that are developed to expand higher-education's ability to generate offset credits. The DCOI seeks business, non-profit, and peer institutional partners to collaboratively offset emissions towards sustainability goals. Prior to his position at Duke University, Tani attended Oberlin College, then completed a certificate of GHG accounting, and started Tomorrow's Climate Solutions (TCS) a client-based consulting group.
