Author tackles climate change with new book

Posted onPosted on 3rd Jan

A Sutton woman is on a mission to make British businesses greener in a bid to combat climate change.

Leadership and sustainability coach Sophie Wragg, founder of Be Your Best Version, has released a new book Sustainable Business: Uncover the benefits of embracing environmental and social responsibility.

Passionate about helping businesses and people see the benefits of embracing environmental responsibility, she said: “So often we hear the downsides of becoming greener, but it can be a very one-sided conversation.

“No one ever really talks about the benefits and opportunities that becoming greener and more climate friendly can offer.

“I want to help businesses, especially micro and small businesses, to seize those benefits. It can be tough to run a business and these opportunities can make a huge difference to the profitability and resilience of an organisation.”

The book tackles the business world’s approach to climate change and supports UK businesses to cut emissions and reach net zero.

Sophie said it was the result of months of dedication, helping businesses to calculate their carbon footprint, develop targets and action plans to reduce their impact, and explore the opportunities of embracing greener ways of working.

“I am passionate about addressing climate change,” she added. “My aim is to support businesses of all sizes to make a difference by making small changes that will protect our planet.

“My book condenses all the information a business needs to make positive changes into an easy-to-understand guide, and is the first of its kind.”

The book was officially launched at an event at Mansfield Innovation Centre, where innovation director David Smith interviewed Sophie (pictured). He said: “Sophie has worked hard to bring this to fruition.

“Her knowledge of the sustainability agenda is immense, and this book is a fantastic guide for all businesses to take control of their drive towards net zero.”

Sustainable Business: Uncover the benefits of embracing environmental and social responsibility, by Sophie Wragg, published by Authors and Co, is available at Amazon for £10.99.
