In 2011, WaterAid formed an exclusive partnership with Belu Water, a pioneering social enterprise and leading ethical water service brand that produces bottled mineral water, filtered water systems and refillable water bottles.
A unique long-term commitment, it has already seen the multi award-winning organisation give over £3 million to our life-changing work through sales of its products. Belu can be found in all the best places to eat and drink across the UK, a list of stockists can be found on their website.
In addition to creating positive social impact through this partnership, Belu is an environment-first brand. The business is 100% carbon neutral across all of its products – packaging has high levels of recycled content and is fully recyclable, and Belu is committed to reducing their carbon footprint each year. In recognition of this, and of their partnership with WaterAid, Belu was presented with The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development in May 2017.
CEO Karen Lynch is passionate about the company's sustainable business practice, and in 2016 Belu Water extended their partnership to 2030, to align with Global Goal Six.
What our partners say
The partnership in practice
Karen Lynch, CEO of Belu Water visited Madagascar to see the impact clean water can have in all areas of life. Creating a ripple, the water effect means children can go to school and mothers are able to work to support their families.
