Tashi is a Director of Carbon Conservation (CC): the first company to use carbon finance to conserve tropical rainforests. CC was winner of Environmental Finance Magazine's Carbon Finance Deal of the Year with Bank of America Merrill Lynch for the Ulu Masen project in Aceh aiming to conserve 700,000 hectares of forest in Indonesia. Such is also the subject of the documentary film "The Burning Season" narrated by Hugh Jackman which focused on the stories of forest orangutan conservation and challenges of development.
His fascination of sustainability and drive to make an impact, has had him lead and work on startups ranging from tech product development and tourism projects with Google Glass (the first outside the USA), to socially conscious condoms. Tashi is also an Australian Ambassador for the United Nations Women Singapore Committee and the Project Inspire program, which helps young change-makers create a better world for women and girls in Asia Pacific.
