Max Oliva, Associate Director of IE’s Social Impact Management
Belu is our newest example of a Social Enterprise, which handles the triple bottom line by being a profitable business which offers a differentiated and competitive product, while caring for the environment and for the developing world.
Based in the UK, Belu has developed a biodegradable bottle which is made from a 100% renewable resource – corn – which can be commercially composted back to soil in 12 weeks (roughly a million years faster than traditional plastics). On the Social part, the company has been conceived with the goal of financing clean-water projects around the world, thus donating ALL of their profits to projects with WaterAid in India and Africa.
