Valentina is a senior associate with RMI’s Climate Intelligence Program, where she supports the Supply Chain Emissions and Carbon Markets Initiatives. Her work on supply chain traceability builds on the program’s goal to determine markets where commodities can be differentiated based on their sustainability characteristics. In the Carbon Markets Initiative, she leads research on the alignment between the voluntary carbon market (VCM) and the rights of Indigenous People and local communities.
Before joining RMI in 2021, Valentina worked as a sustainability analyst for the Reporting Matters project of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). Prior to that, she was a research and communications assistant at the Energy Politics Group of ETH Zurich and the Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) Initiative within the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).
