Recession-beating entrepreneurs: Paula Owen

Can you start a business during a recession and still be succesful? We met with six Simply Business customers who have done just, building businesses in difficult times.

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing the world today. With dramatic weather events increasing in frequency, and with governments fighting about how to tackle the problem, the environment is back in the headlines.

But the environment is also big business. Many firms want to tackle their environmental impact, but they lack they expertise to do it on their own. This is where Paula Owen comes in.

Owen runs an environmental consultancy, helping businesses of every size with their carbon challenges. From insulating premises to providing staff with carbon literacy training, Paula Owen Consulting guides businesses through every stage of their carbon plan.

In this exclusive video interview we spoke to Owen about the realities of starting and running a consultancy - and the challenges associated with turning businesses green.
