Talking Business podcast: Environmental charity Greenfleet bigs up carbon offsetting

0

Talking Business is a podcast review of the Australian economy, presented by seasoned business journalists Leon Gettler and Garry Barker, produced in association with the RMIT College of Business. It features interviews with prominent business leaders and expert analysis from RMIT academics.

The Talking Business fellas, Leon and Garry, recently sat down with Greenfleet CEO Sara Gipton to discuss the not-for-profit charity’s efforts to offset carbon emissions by planting 7 million trees. And counting.

Greenfleet trees, planted on private property and in national parks, are never chopped down. The Greenfleet website, Greenfleet.com.au, allows individuals and companies to take an Australian average of emissions that need to be offset, or calculate their own emissions.

For the average person the cost of offsetting their carbon emissions is a tax-deductible, wallet-friendly $55 a year. Bargain!
