Belu invests 100% of their net profits into our work to reach more people around the world with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene worldwide.

Our partnership

In 2011, we formed an exclusive partnership with Belu, a pioneering social enterprise and leading ethical drinks business that produces bottled mineral water, filtered water systems, soft drinks, mixers and refillable water bottles.

Over a decade on, this unique commitment has seen the multi award-winning organisation invest over £5 million in our work, transforming the lives of more than 330,00 people around the world – and creating a ripple effect of positive change that will last for generations to come.

In 2016 we extended our partnership to 2030, in alignment with Global Goal Six: to ensure clean water and sanitation for all.

Driving social and environmental change

As well as creating positive social impact through this partnership, Belu is committed to sustainability: they’ve made a 69% saving in CO2 emissions since 2010, turned over 90 million old bottles into new ones, and been certified carbon-neutral. They’ve pledged to save 100,000 more tonnes of carbon emissions, and recycle over 2 million more kilograms of glass and plastic, over the next ten years.

In recognition of this, and of their partnership with us, Belu has received two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise: one for Sustainable Development in 2017, and one for Innovation in 2019.

What our partners say

It is a privilege for Belu to partner with WaterAid to bring about change for so many communities around the world. We are deeply committed to our 10-year partnership; investing in equitable access to clean water and solutions to tackle the climate crisis is an investment into a sustainable future for all.
