Kieran Cato has been taking part in the Vinnie’s CEO Sleepout since 2020.
There are currently more than 122,000 people in Australia doing it rough and sleeping on the streets. The Vinnie’s CEO Sleepout is an annual initiative to help break the cycle of homelessness and help those most in need.
Working with Sydney by Kayak, an eco tourism certified company, the CATO team removed 7.25kg of plastic from Sydney Harbour and put $180 towards local sustainability initiatives.
CATO is a Climate Active carbon neutral certified organisation!
The accreditation is re-assessed on a yearly basis and is obtained by measuring, reducing, and finally offsetting carbon emissions. CATO purchased carbon offsets with Carbon Neutral Australia’s solar power renewable energy project. Kieran was motivated to invest in solar as it establishes the infrastructure for ongoing sources of renewable energy.
Youth Off The Streets supports young people to overcome personal hardship, develop new skills and turn their lives around. A volunteer mentor since 2023, and committed to a two year term, Kieran Cato is assisting these young people to build a positive future for themselves.
