Who we are

For most of my adult life I’ve been passionate about helping to build a better, more sustainable future. I think it’s in my DNA! And by launching a communications consultancy for ethical and sustainable organisations I believe I’m doing my bit to support the growing green economy and make a genuine difference.

SFW Communications Ltd was founded in 2013 by Sophy Fearnley-Whittingstall. Sophy has a wealth of experience in journalism; business communications; PR and renewable energy.

  • Former Head of PR and Communications for Good Energy, the UK’s leading green electricity supplier, she has designed and implemented successful communications strategies across the full range of media – including national and specialist press, broadcast and social media. 


  • A seasoned and successful campaigner, Sophy is a founder member and coordinator of the Wiltshire Clean Energy Alliance, established in 2012 to promote fairer planning policy for renewables. She also worked closely with Friends of the Earth on their key Clean British Energy campaign to influence the UK Energy Bill.

Sophy has built from scratch an excellent public relations and community engagement programme which led to Solstice Renewables being recognised as one of the leading UK solar developers in terms of community benefits and engagement. Sophy has played a critical lead role in the team, helping us win planning consent for over 90MW of solar projects, and is a pleasure to work with.
