Assessing Carbon Footprint to Achieve Carbon Neutrality for Belu Water

Anthesis has been instrumental in helping us quantify our carbon footprint and understand where our biggest opportunities lie over the years. This long-term support has allowed us to reach carbon neutrality and maintain our status as the UK’s most ethical water brand.”

Nolan Wright – Head of Operations, Belu Water


Anthesis’ work with Belu Water to assess the company’s carbon footprint and help it to achieve and demonstrate carbon neutrality in compliance with PAS 2060.

Belu is a UK based water services provider that operates as an ethical business and social enterprise. As an exclusive bottled water partner of WaterAid it donates all its profits to fund clean water projects.


Belu endeavors to set the environmental benchmark in its sector and be an environmental brand first. To maintain this position, Belu needed to reach its carbon reduction targets as set out in its carbon strategy and demonstrate its commitment to carbon neutrality.

Anthesis has a long-standing relationship with the team at Belu and we are responsible for carrying out the company’s organisational and supply chain carbon footprint and helping it to demonstrate carbon neutrality in compliance with the PAS 2060 standard on an annual basis.

For this project Anthesis provided:

  • A full life cycle footprint of Belu’s range of products, covering raw materials, transport, bottling, distribution, product use and end of life, plus an organisational carbon footprint including the London office.
  • Documentation and checks required for Belu to demonstrate carbon neutrality and commit to carbon neutrality, in conformance with PAS2060.


Belu’s unrivalled commitment to ethical and responsible business practices is evidenced in the 20 plus awards it has won.

In 2017, Belu was presented with the highly prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development. The company was honoured for demonstrating continuous reductions in CO2 emissions, constantly seeking new ways to reduce environmental impact and creating net positive outcomes both environmentally and socially.

Key outputs included:

  • Organisational and supply chain carbon footprint.
  • Annual report with a breakdown by type of product and insights into reductions achieved.
  • PAS 2060 statement.
