How we give back
Our CEO Lisa Evans, gives back to the community through volunteering time, services, and expertise to several charity groups and by her commitment to leave a lighter footprint for the planet.
Carbon Neutral Partnership
In partnership with Carbon Neutral, we help reduce environmental impact via the Plant A Tree program.
A tree is planted for every client we teach, mentor, or coach, so we may help to leave the world a better place for future generations.
How does the Plant A Tree program work?
The Carbon Neutral Plant a Tree Program allows organisations to actively support the vital work by the planting of mixed native species in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor.
The Plant a Tree Program, aims to restore landscapes, and reproduce natural ecosystems. So far, Carbon Neutral has planted 440,000 trees, restoring more than 300ha of cleared land.
Flying and driving
For every flight that we make, we choose to Fly Carbon Neutral via the Qantas Program, supporting accredited projects that offset our carbon footprint and make a positive impact on the environment.
Our CEO, drives a full electric vehicle and elects to eat a vegan diet. Both these measures may seem small, but every little helps towards a healthier planet.
