We were very fortunate to have Leo Kerr to present for our Speakers Series at the One World Centre last Friday 9th October. Leo Kerr was the co-founder of Carbon Neutral in 2001. This was the first not-for-profit organisation of its kind in Australia that developed a formula for everyday people and businesses to calculate and offset their carbon through donating towards planting trees where land owners agreed to a 99 year covenant protecting the trees. Millions of trees were planted across Western Australia as a result of this initiative, which still continues. Leo was also the co-founder of the Children’s Forest which now covers 17 hectares at Whiteman Park, and founder of the Million Trees Program through which tens of thousands of Western Australian students have planted millions of trees.
Leo is passionate about electric vehicles and his talk covered the current state of the electric car market and what we can expect in the future.
