Tatjana Vujic works as Special Counsel in the Energy Group, where she focuses on issues related to climate and the energy transition. Formerly, Ms. Vujic was President of WasteNot Strategies, the consulting business she established to assist clients with issues related to climate target setting and strategies to achieve climate as well as sustainability goals. Ms. Vujic holds special knowledge of renewable natural gas development and policy, natural climate solutions, agriculture, carbon offsetting and other market-based mechanisms to reduce or zero-out organizations’ greenhouse gas emissions.

Ms. Vujic has decades of experience guiding major institutions in the design and execution of strategies to address their greenhouse gas, renewable energy, and sustainability goals. Most notably, Ms. Vujic played an essential role helping Duke University plan and execute its climate and energy transition strategy. In 2009, she launched the Duke Carbon Offsets Initiative at Duke University, which she directed from 2009 to 2014. Ms. Vujic also helped launch the James E. Rogers Energy Access Project at Duke University, and later returned to Duke as Director of Biogas Strategy where she was tasked with identifying and securing a renewable natural gas supply large enough to cancel out all of the University’s natural gas-related greenhouse gas emissions. Ms. Vujic translated her experience at the University into her successful consulting business, where she advised a diverse array of clients in the development of sources of renewable natural gas, the abatement of methane related to agriculture and livestock operations, the creation of high-integrity and financially innovative carbon mitigation projects, protocols and strategies, and the design of clean energy, natural climate solutions and resilience policy at the state and federal levels. 

Ms. Vujic was recognized in 2019 as a Trailblazer by BioCycle Magazine for her efforts to establish and scale a renewable natural gas market from livestock methane, beginning with a partnership between Duke University, Duke Energy, and Google to build the first swine waste to energy system to yield carbon offsets and renewable energy certificates and meet stringent environmental performance standards. Her efforts would later include developing what has become the roadmap for biogas and RNG development in North Carolina and a model for other states and institutions. She has been in leading roles in several working lands and climate resilience work groups and was appointed by former North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue to chair the state’s Energy Policy Council.
