‘Ohana And Community Fuels John Leong’s Journey To Highlight Hawai‘i’s Natural Resources
As a serial green entrepreneur, John Leong aims to empower youth through environmental stewardship opportunities and spread awareness on the importance of ʻāina.
With a laser-focused mindset, the CEO of Pono Pacific Land Management and Kupu explains how his commitment to green impact reminds us all to leverage the state’s strengths for the world to emulate.
“The pursuit of doing what is right is important, but we can be incremental. We’re gonna make mistakes along the way, and that’s ok too.”
Leong’s efforts have led Kupu down a focused path that successfully intertwines a community-first mission with profits that redraw Hawaiʻi’s landscape into an agricultural powerhouse, benefit the needs of the Gen Z workforce, and create opportunity for local kids to become stewards of the place they call home.
