Belu

Belu reduces their environmental impact and gives all its profits to WaterAid


Belu is the most ethical bottled mineral water available and started with a simple idea – that there was a better way to do business by reducing environmental impact and using all profits to fund clean water projects.

Belu is now a multi award-winning ethical business and leading social enterprise. You will find their bottles of British natural mineral water in outlets as diverse as Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Jamie’s Italian, InterContinental Hotels Group, D&D London and Zizzi.

Belu take every possible step to minimise environmental impact. They make the best environmental decisions across all aspects of the business – from the way head office is run, to the distribution model and materials used. Belu’s way of doing business is therefore not just driven by cost, but by the impact on the planet.

The business is 100% carbon neutral – and by that they mean all products and the company itself. They constantly develop new ways to reduce overall impact, including developing the lightest weight clear bottles on the market (Ethical Glass) and using recycled materials.

Belu is the exclusive bottled water partner of WaterAid, giving all their profits to the charity. Over 650 million people live without safe water, but Belu believes access to safe water is a human right and support WaterAid’s goal to eradicate water poverty by 2030.
The partnership began in 2011 when they pledged to give WaterAid £1m by 2020. They have achieved this milestone five years early and have now donated over £1m to WaterAid, transforming the lives of over 66,000 people.
